PBBM ensures gov’t readiness for Mawar

The administration is taking the right precautions as the country braces for the likely effects of Super Typhoon Mawar on the country, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. assured the people on Thursday.

In a Facebook post, Marcos said the government continues to monitor the situation and updates on the expected onslaught of Mawar as it draws closer to the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

He stated, “We continue to monitor Super Typhoon Mawar, which is forecast to land in the Philippine Area of Responsibility by Friday night or Saturday early.

As Marcos continued, “We are preparing for its possible effects not only on the northern part of the country but also on areas that might be possibly hit by the typhoon. Pinaghahandaan din natin ang magiging epekto nito hindi lamang sa hilagang bahagi ng bansa.

In a meeting with Defense Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr., Marcos reported that he received assurances that the federal government and local government units (LGUs) are prepared to help in places where Mawar may cause chaos.

“We made sure that money and food packs have already been prepositioned, response teams are on standby, and LGUs are ready to assist the areas that the typhoon might hit,” he said.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration’s (PAGASA) 11 a.m. meteorological bulletin, Mawar has maintained its strength, and a “much closer approach” to the Philippines is probable.

Mawar, with maximum winds of up to 185 km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 230 kph, was last seen 2,065 kilometers east of southeast Luzon.

Mawar, traveling west at 10 kph, could arrive in PAR on Friday night or Saturday morning and be named Betty.

Mawar is expected to keep becoming stronger over the following three days and might reach its maximum intensity of 215 kph on Sunday.

PAGASA warned that heavy rains could fall over the Cagayan Valley between Sunday and Tuesday next week due to the typhoon’s rain bands.

Except for the Batanes-Babuyan Islands area, which may see gale-to-storm-force conditions, most region sections may encounter strong to-gale-force conditions in the following days.

Mawar may also intensify the southwest monsoon, bringing showers starting on Sunday or Monday to the western regions of Luzon and Visayas.
