MANILA, Philippines–While government agencies prepare for the effects of Typhoon “Ruby,” which is expected to hit the Philippines on Saturday evening, residents on the path of the storm may find these safety tips useful.

Issued last year by the Philippine Red Cross (PRC), these set of guidelines remain relevant and useful.

The state weather bureau’s bulletin on Friday afternoon said Ruby, packing maximum sustained winds of 195 kilometers per hour, was last observed 380 kilometers east of Borongan, Eastern Samar. The typhoon has weakened but is still expected to delivery heavy to intense rains throughout the country.




If there is a need to move to an evacuation center, follow these reminders:

  • Evacuate calmly.
  • Close the windows and turn off the main power switch.
  • Put important appliances and belongings on high ground.
  • Avoid the way leading to the river.


Below are the contact numbers of concerned government agencies:
