City DRRM Council convenes as TD Usman nears

The City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (CDRRMC) was convened for an emergency meeting today, December 27, 2018 at City Mayor’s Office as Tropical Depression Usman nears.

For the PAG-ASA Sever Weather Bulletin at 05:00 PM, Usman was estimated based on all available data at 410 km East of Guiuan, Eastern Samar (10.3 °N, 129.4 °E) with maximum sustained winds of 55 km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 65 km/h.

Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal Number 1 has already been raised in Samar and Eastern Visayas as well as other nearby provinces and Usman may intensify into a Tropical Storm prior to landfall over Eastern Samar tomorrow afternoon (28 December).

No suspension of work was recommended by the CDRRMC for tomorrow but specific offices have already started preparing should their be a need for forced evacuation for families living in prone areas.
