“Super typhoon” approaches the Philippines

Reading Time: 1 minute

Typhoon Pablo is forecast to make landfall over Surigao del Norte on the morning of December 4, bringing with it sustained winds of 185 km/h with gusts up to 220 km/h. The storm’s disruptance, expected to be the most powerful of the year and elevated to super typhoon status, has already caused the cancellation of two Cebu Pacific flights in Butuan, Mindanao.

The typhoon is expected to affect large swathes of northern Mindanao, the Visayas, and even areas of South Tagalog and Metro Manila.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said that landslides are possible throughout several major city centres throughout the Visayas and Mindanao, including Davao, Cebu and Surigao.

It remains to be seen just how much the storm will affect Manila, now home to the world’s ninth best-performing stock market.

It is believed that Pablo could bring the same level of devastation that typhoon Sendong did last year, a storm that killed more than 1,000 people across northern Mindanao.

Sendong wrecked $31 million in damages to agriculture and property across the affected regions.
