Super Typhoon "Parma" weakens slightly before making landfall

1:55am Philippine time, Saturday Oct 3rd. No new weather update available at this time. For now Angeles City area is just light rain and no wind. A slightly weaker Typhoon Pepeng (international codename Parma) continues to slow down and has shifted course slightly, threatening to make landfall in Northern Cagayan instead of Aurora-Isabela by Saturday evening, weather bureau PAGASA said Friday.

PAGASA chief weather forecaster Nathaniel Cruz said the typhoon hit its maximum strength of 195 kilometers per hour while at sea but has weakened slightly.

"It is still a strong typhoon. It is now packing sustained winds of 175 kilometers per hour and gusts of up to 210 kph," Cruz said in a press briefing. "If there is no change in speed or direction, it will make landfall over Northern Cagayan by [Saturday] night."

PAGASA chief Prisco Nilo said the typhoon could weaken further once it makes landfall. He also noted that the storm could change course either westward or even further north because of a high-pressure area in Hong Kong.


good to hear your doing fine

good to hear your doing fine and thanks for the updates.

i think more and more of us are going to have beach front property if things keep going this way!


Will build an Arc-----tomorrow

Well, looks like my house is still in the same place it was when I went to sleep last night. So guess this ol' man is going back to bed. If this rain continues and if global warming is not brought under control; I'll have beach front property in a few years.
That atlest should give me a nice view from the front door, increase the property value, and provide a source of free fresh fish to eat.



Hi Dave,

Thanks for the note. We are close to Angeles City and weather not too bad as yet. But we have 30 gal of drinking water, food, and lots of candles at the ready. Will post another update after midnight if the power is still on. If not, will have to suffer without even cable TV till the power company pickes up the pieces in a day or two.
These typhoons get to be a real pain--but still better than the Nebraska snow...


Hi Gene, If you can, please

Hi Gene,
If you can, please keep us updated about the conditions in the Philippines. But, first and foremost, keep yourself and those around you safe.

God Bless,
