MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) on Thursday said that two or three storms are expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) in November.

The storms will be named “Odette,” “Paolo” and “Quedan” once each enters PAR, respectively.

“Kadalasan po ay tumatama ang mga bagyo sa November sa gitnang bahagi ng ating bansa, sa Southern Luzon, sa Visayas at sa may Northern Mindanao,” said Pagasa weather specialist Ariel Rojas in a briefing.

(Typhoons usually strike in November in the central part of our country, in Southern Luzon, in the Visayas, and Northern Mindanao.)

“Meron ding mga bagyo na nagre-recurve, or hindi tumatama sa kalupaan at bumabalik patungo sa hilagang bahagi ng Western North Pacific,” he added.

(Some hurricanes recurve or do not hit the terrain and return to the northern part of the Western North Pacific.)

The most notable storm that hit the country in November was Super Typhoon Haiyan, locally known as Yolanda, in 2013.

The storm became legendary as the “Storm of the Century,” killing more than 6,000 people and displacing millions more after barrelling through the central Philippines and the Visayas.

“Kailangan natin maghanda ‘yung mga nakatira sa Southern Luzon, Visayas at Northern Mindanao dahil doon nga usually dumadaan ang mga bagyo,” said Rojas.

(We need to prepare those who live in Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Northern Mindanao because that is where typhoons usually pass.)

Meanwhile, no storms or weather disturbances are expected to form within PAR in the remaining days of October.
