TROPICAL STORM RAMON – The Isabela and Cagayan provinces have their landslide-prone roads closed and classes suspended.
According to ABS-CBN, the local authorities declared these in preparation to the approaching storm Ramon, which was internationally called Kalmaegi.
Aside from that, according to Governor Rodito Albano III work in the government and private offices in Isabela were also suspended in order for parents to prepare for the storm.
“Kinakatakutan natin dito yung volume of rain kasi yung hangin mahina naman,”
Albano further added that several areas in the said province were closed to motorists since they are prone landslide.
As for Cagayan, they are on red alert since yesterday (November 14, Thursday) to ensure the preparation of residents, according to Governor Manuel Mamba. Mamba further added that classes in pre-school were suspended.
Based on the report, he emphasized that this is due to the fact that they live in a valley, which is prone to erosion and flooding.
PAGASA said in its 5 AM advisory that Ramon was last spotted at about 445 kilometers east north east of the town of Casiguran, Aurora.
It is packed with maximum sustained winds of about 75 kilometers per hour and gusts of up to 90 kilometers per hour. It is currently moving north at about 15 kilometers per hour. Ramon is more likely to make landfall in north Luzon on the weekend up to Monday morning.
