Tropical Storm Saola

On July 22, a tropical disturbance formed east-northeast of Palau. Late on July 26, the JMA upgraded the system to a tropical depression.

On July 27, the JTWC issued a TCFA on the system. Early on July 28, the JTWC upgraded the system to a tropical depression, whilst the JMA upgraded it to a tropical storm and named it Saola. Soon, the PAGASA upgraded the system to a tropical depression and named it Gener. Later that day, the JTWC upgraded Saola to a tropical storm. Early on July 29, the JMA upgraded Saola to a severe tropical storm.

Saola caused widespread rains in the Philippines due to the enhancement of the southwest monsoon. On July 29, domestic and international flights throughout the country were delayed and cancelled. Small fishing boats were advised not to enter the water as gale warnings were issued by PAGASA. Flooding is imminent as different dams are expected to reach critical levels. Three roads in northern Luzon was impassable due to floods and landslides. About sixty families in Rodriguez, Rizal were evacuated due to severe flooding in the area.

 

Twin Typhoons Saola and Damrey – August 1st, 2012

Typhoons Saola and Damrey – August 1st, 2012

Twin Typhoons Saola (10W) and Damrey (11W) are churning in the Pacific Ocean, the former nearer the coast of China, the latter nearer the coast of Japan.

Typhoon Saola, the ninth typhoon of the year, has strengthened and is approaching coastal regions in southeastern Fujian, which has started to prepare for possible disasters. Right now Saola is churning over the Philippine Sea and its heavy rains batter Philippine’s northern Luzon Island.

Yesterday, it was reported that Saola was expected to make landfall at eastern China between the cities of Fuzhou and Taizhou Thursday night or Friday, local time, and that the system would gain typhoon strength at landfall with flooding rain, destructive winds and severe coastal flooding. It was also reported that Damrey could reach typhoon strength when it crosses Japan’s northern Ryukyu Islands or southern Kyushu at midweek with heavy rain and damaging winds. Since yesterday, both systems have effectively reached typhoon status.
