Track of TD 22W

Tropical Depression Nalgae (22W), located approximately 180 nautical miles southeast of Hanoi, Vietnam, has tracked southwest at 6
knots over the past six hours.

Maximum significant wave height is 14 feet. Since passing the Philippines, the system has posed a threat to Vietnam and southeastern China.

On October 3, the National Marine Environmental Forecasting Center of China upgraded the rainstorm alert for Typhoon Nalgae to the orange level, the second-highest alert level in the country’s four-level rainstorm alert system, reporting that a number of tidal stations off the provinces of Hainan, Guangdong and Fujian would experience tides beyond the ordinary safety levels.

According to the agency, Nalgae, the third tropical cyclone to have affected the region in a short span of just 10 days, can bring about many problems, as strong winds and heavy rain had caused severe damage to some water projects in those regions and consumed large quantities of flood control materials.

Track of TY 22W

Typhoon Nalgae (22W), located approximately 155 nm northwest of Manila, Philippines, has tracked westward at 19 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 20 feet.
Nalgae, the second typhoon (after Typhoon Nesat 20W) to hit Philippines within one week, made landfall along the coast of Dinapigue town in Isabela province. The PAGASA weather bureau has announced that the ground is still supersaturated and cannot absorb more water, meaning it will flow down to rivers and towns, and that there is a big possibility that landslides, flooding and flash floods could occur.

The search and rescue operations for Typhoon Nesat were halted because of the fierce weather brought by Nalgae. Nalgae was making a similar path across the saturated Luzon Island as Typhoon Nesat. The wind gusts brought by Nalgae toppled trees and blew away tin roofs of some houses in Isabela’s provincial capital of Ilagan. Nalgae continued to worsen the flooding and destruction brought by Nesat. Nalgae was far more stronger than Nesat and plummeted the nation with more winds and rains.

Also, PAGASA announced that an estimated 10-18 mm per hour of rains were experienced in several areas across the nation filling up dams and causing river systems to swell. As the storm continued to move inland with strong winds, many structures including billboards, tarpaulins and wooden materials in the town of Cauayan were damaged. The barriers of the Isabela highway were also destroyed by the typhoon.
According to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDDRMC), the onslaught of the typhoon resulted in the death of 1 person living in the Mountain Province, a landlocked province of the Philippines in the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon.
