Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said today, November 11, that it looks like Typhoon Ulysses will spare Negros Occidental.
However, the province could be hit by some rain so all local government units should remain on alert level, he said.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) reported at 5 p.m. today that Typhoon “Ulysses” continued to intensify as it threatens the Quezon-Aurora area.
The typhoon will be experienced over Camarines Sur and Camarines Norte until tonight and over Aurora and the northern portion of Quezon tonight through early tomorrow morning, it said.
There will be heavy rainfall between tonight and early tomorrow morning, November 12, over Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Metro Manila, CALABARZON, Aurora, Bulacan, Pampanga, and Bataan, PAGASA said.
There will also be moderate to heavy over the Cordillera Administrative Region, mainland
Cagayan Valley, Catanduanes, Marinduque, the northern portion of Mindoro provinces, and the rest of Central Luzon, it added.
PAGASA also said there will be light to moderate to at times heavy rains over the rest of Luzon and Visayas.
Flooding, including flashfloods, rain-induced landslides, and sediment-laden streamflows may occur during heavy or prolonged rainfall, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards, it added.*
