The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) announced earlier that Typhoon Maysak is set to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Wednesday, April 1, 2015.
Based upon the report of GMA News, PAGASA spotted Typhoon Maysak at around 2,240 km east of Mindanao as of 10 a.m. The state weather agency noted that it’s still too far to affect any part of the Philippines.
The typhoon is now gearing up with 140 kilometers per hour maximum sustained winds and gustiness for about 170 kph. It is expected to move at 23 kph west. It will be called Chedeng once it enters PAR.
Government and other non-government agencies are now on full alert as the typhoon nears the country. The typhoon is said to hit the country in the midst of Holy Week.
Meanwhile, authorities are busy preparing for the Holy Week starting April 2 until April 5, 2015. Police were deployed in bus terminals, airports and public places to secure safety and security especially for those who are going to commemorate the Lenten Season via festivities and other occasion.
