Bopha Strengthens to Typhoon -World Vision on alert as Typhoon Bopha heads for Philippines


Mon, 3 Dec 2012

Source: Member // World Vision - USA / Alertnet News

Forecasters predicting storm could bring heavy flooding, wind damage on same level as Typhoon Washi
Washi killed more than 1,000 people, left thousands more homeless in December 2011

Manila, PHILIPPINES (3 December 2012) - With Typhoon Bopha set to hit the Philippines within the next 24 hours, World Vision is preparing its response and coordinating with local government disaster units to ensure the safety of children and families that will be impacted by the storm.

“World Vision is currently monitoring our assisted areas along the trail of the typhoon. We alerted the communities, especially families in the danger zones, to be ready to evacuate from possible floods and landslides brought by the storm, which experts say could be much worse than Washi,” said Bebeth Tiu, World Vision’s Director of Emergency Response in the Philippines.

World Vision has activated its quick response teams across Visayas and Mindanao. Bopha is expected to make landfall by Tuesday morning, local Philippines time, coming in via southern Philippines and possibly affecting provinces in the Eastern Visayas, Northeast Mindanao, and the Bicol Region. World Vision currently works with vulnerable families in the poorest communities in these areas assisting over 50,000 children through development programs.

“We are now experiencing persistent rains here,” said Annaliza Aspirin, a World Vision staff member based in Surigao del Sur. “Classes and work have been suspended and the government already warned communities in low-lying and flood-prone areas to prepare for evacuation as we brace for more heavy rains when Bopha hits land.”

Government disaster authorities warn the public that rains brought by Typhoon Bopha will unleash a hazardous force stronger than Typhoon Washi. That storm killed more than 1,000 people and left hundreds of thousands more devastated in the southern Philippines on December 2011, two weeks before Christmas. Many residents have already heeded the local government’s advice for preemptive evacuation as families head to evacuation centers set up in schools. Mylene Dapigan, a 24-year-old mother of two rushed to the evacuation center with her family.

“We lost our loved ones last year. We don’t want this to happen again,” she said.

Crislyn Felisilda, World Vision Emergency Communications Officer in Cagayan de Oro City saw the evacuations take place as people fled, carrying what belongings they could.

“Local government units doubled preparations and secure evacuation plans following Typhoon Washi,” she said. “People are worried of the news that Typhoon Bopha is stronger than the killer storm Washi that devastated most parts of Cagayan de Oro City last year. Sunday masses yesterday offered prayers and messages of typhoon preparedness as we celebrate Christmas season.”

Meanwhile World Vision staff are equipping their own families for the worst, even as they prepare to help others.

“My family's packing up clothes, stocking ready-to-eat foods, including first aid medicines. Some residents near the river bank have evacuated to relatives living in higher grounds. Some people are buying sacks to pack up their clothes. The trucks and sirens of local government are on standby. We don't want to experience the loss and pain of Washi again," says Jane Salingay, a World Vision staff member.

The Philippines, ranked the 3rd most disaster-prone country in the world, experiences around 20 typhoons a year. Bopha is the 16th typhoon to enter the country this year. Weather authorities expect another typhoon before the year ends.

World Vision, through its Washi Emergency Response that lasted for 3 months until February 2012, assisted affected families in the hardest-hit communities in the urban centers and rural areas, helping more than 50,000 individuals, including 10,000 children. World Vision was able to provide food and food-for-work assistance, water purifying packets and school kits for children.

Typhoon Bopha Smashes into Philippines

The Sun Daily, 4 December 2012 - 10:58am
Last updated on 4 December 2012 - 11:04am




Workers clear a road with a fallen tree after Typhoon Bophal hit the city of Tagum,
Davao del Norter province, on the southern island of Mindanao on Dec 4, 2012. AFP



MANILA (Dec 4, 2012): Typhoon Bopha smashed into the southern Philippines Tuesday, uprooting trees and bringing drenching rains as more than 40,000 people crammed into shelters to escape the storm's onslaught.
Bopha -- packing gusts of up to 210 kilometres (130 miles) an hour -- made landfall on Mindanao's east coast at dawn, raking across the island of 10 million people.
It uprooted trees and blew off roofs made of light materials, according to residents and AFP reporters on the ground, with cities plunged into darkness after authorities cut power supplies.
There were no immediate reports of casualties or serious damage but the island was in lockdown, with residents of coastal and flood-prone areas moving into shelters as floods hit some areas.
Aviation and shipping were suspended, with 80 flights grounded and thousands of ferry passengers stranded as the coastguard ordered vessels to stay in port, the civil defence office said.
More than 41,000 people had moved into nearly 1,000 government shelters across the island by early Tuesday, it said in its latest bulletin.
Large parts of Mindanao were without power after supplies were shut down to cut the risk of fires and electrocutions, according to Liza Mazo, regional civil defence official.
"Power was lost before dawn. There were reports of powerful winds, high waves and possible storm surge threatening some coastal areas," she said.
"We are hoping and praying that there will be no casualties."
People living in the storm-hit area braced for the worst of the typhoon, the strongest cyclone to hit the Philippines this year.
"We have taken our pigs and chickens inside our house because their shed might be destroyed," 46-year-old shopkeeper Marianita Villamor of San Fermin town on Mindanao's east coast told AFP by telephone.
"The winds were howling and I could hear the trees falling to the ground since early this morning."
Villamor said her relatives who lived in a nearby coastal area had joined hundreds of other families who moved into temporary shelters including schools and other government buildings late Monday.
"I have not heard from then since because (mobile phone) signals have been on and off," she said. "I hope they are dry and safe."
The commercial centre of Cagayan de Oro, one of Mindanao's largest cities, was hit by flooding as rivers overflowed following heavy rain.
Schools were shut in Mindanao and across large areas of the central Philippines.
President Benigno Aquino led calls for evacuations on Monday, saying: "(Bopha's) destructive potential is no laughing matter. It is expected to be the strongest typhoon to hit our country in 2012."
The Philippines is battered by about 20 typhoons a year, some of them destructive. Bopha is the sixteenth so far this year.
In August, nearly 100 people were killed and more than a million were displaced by heavy flooding caused by a series of storms.
Nineteen typhoons struck the country last year, of which 10 were destructive, leading to more than 1,500 deaths and affecting nearly 10 percent of the total population, according to the government. – AFP

Super Typhoon Bopha, packing maximum sustained winds of 160 mph, made landfall in the southern Philippines on Tuesday.


West Pacific Satellite Image

Bopha, the equivalent of a category-five hurricane, grazed the southern islands of the Republic of Palau late Sunday night local time, producing wind gusts up to 70 mph at the National Weather Service office in Koror, Palau. Approximately 21,000 live in the Republic of Palau, a group of roughly 300 islands east of the Philippines.

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, Bopha's powerful, but rather small hurricane wind field (only somewhat larger than 2004's Hurricane Charley) made landfall in Mindanao Island Tuesday, local time. Bopha will then continue west-northwestward through the central Philippines. Mindanao is the second largest and easternmost island in the Philippines.
As of the latest forecast, the center of Bopha is expected to remain well south of Manila early Thursday morning, local time, however, some peripheral rain and wind are possible in the Philippine capital.

While both the Atlantic and eastern Pacific hurricane seasons have wound to a close, typhoons can form in the western North Pacific basin any time of year. In 2012, the year's first typhoon ("Pakhar") formed at the end of March. A 2010 tropical depression formed off the Vietnamese coast in late January.
That said, the majority of typhoons form from July through November.
What makes Bopha unique is its southern track and intensity. This will be the strongest typhoon to track through the southern Philippines in 22 years, the last of which to do so was Super Typhoon Mike (Philippine name "Ruping") in Nov. 1990.

Dating to 1945, there have been only 4 other typhoons that have tracked within 200 nautical miles of Davao, Philippines (on Mindanao Island) with an intensity of at least a category-five storm, including Mike ("Ruping") above:
  • Mike "Ruping" (1990)
  • Ike "Nitang" (1984)
  • Kate "Titang" (1970)
  • Louise:Marge "Ining" (1964)
Only "Ruping" and "Ining" were the equivalent of category-five storms.
Speaking of Bopha's southerly location, according to Weather Underground Director of Meteorology, Dr. Jeff Masters, Bopha first became a typhoon at a mere 3.8 degrees north latitude early on November 30 (U.S.), becoming the most southerly typhoon on record in the western North Pacific basin (or, closest to the equator). The old record was Typhoon Kate in October 1970.

Bopha just missed being the closest to equator category-five equivalent typhoon on record in the western North Pacific Basin (or any other basin, for that matter), reaching that intensity at 7.4 degrees north latitude Monday morning (U.S. time). Only Typhoon Louise in 1964, becoming a category-five equivalent typhoon at 7.3 degrees north latitude was closer to the equator.
A more typical typhoon track would be either toward the northern Philippine island of Luzon, then curling northwest, north, or northeast toward southeast China, Taiwan, or Japan.

Typhoon Bopha Leaves Trail of Destruction in Philippines; More Than 140 Dead.

Updated 5:40 AM EST, Wed December 5, 2012


A brutal typhoon has carved a deadly path across the southern Philippines, leveling buildings, setting off landslides and killing more than 140 people, authorities said Wednesday.

Tens of thousands of people have been left homeless by the storm, as the government agencies and relief workers scramble to provide shelters and rescue survivors.

Typhoon Bopha struck first and hardest on the large southern island of Mindanao, which is rarely in the direct path of tropical cyclones, fueling fears that it could be as devastating as a storm that killed more than 1,200 people there almost a year ago.

Bopha, the most powerful typhoon to hit Mindanao in decades, had top winds of 175 kph (110 mph) as it roared ashore over the city of Baganga early Tuesday.

A fuller picture of the havoc it wrought began to emerge Wednesday. The heaviest toll was in Davao, the region where the storm made landfall. A total of 133 bodies have so far been found there, according to Camilo Gudmalin, assistant secretary at the Department of Social Welfare and Development.

Bopha's heavy rain set off sudden, violent floods in several parts of the hilly and remote region, washing away houses and dozens of people. The storm even thwarted some of the authorities' efforts to relocate people in vulnerable areas to safer places.

"In one case in Davao Oriental, the evacuation centers -- public buildings and schools -- were also victims of flash flooding," said Gudmalin. "And as a result, some people who were in an evacuation center died."

Combined with the 13 people reported dead in other regions by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, the toll in Davao brought the total number of people confirmed dead to 146. But with many others still missing amid the chaos inflicted by the storm, the death toll appeared likely to rise further.

"We have difficulty communicating with our teams because power lines and communication signals are down," Gudmalin said. There were also reports of roads cut off by landslides, hampering the efforts of rescue workers.

One thing that was clear was Bopha's destructive force. "I felt like there was an earthquake because the winds and rain were so strong," said Herbert Yepis, a staff member of the humanitarian group World Vision working in Mindanao.


The typhoon has affected more than 213,000 people, demolished houses and stranded people in two Mindanao regions and parts of the Visayas region, according to the disaster agency. About 170,000 people are in evacuation centers, it said.

The tightly packed but fierce storm churned over several other Philippine islands. By Wednesday afternoon, it was starting to move away from the outlying western island of Palawan. But its outer bands continued to soak a wide area with heavy rain, raising the risk of more mudslides and flash floods.

The storm, dubbed "Pablo" in the Philippines, had blown up into a super typhoon at one point Monday as it moved over the ocean, with sustained winds greater than 240 kph -- the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center reported.

That wind speed is two and a half times the top winds of Severe Tropical Storm Washi, known in the Philippines as Sendong, whose heavy rains swept away entire villages in the same region in December 2011.

"Many emotional people in (Mindanao) trying to prepare for Pablo with Sendong fresh in their minds," Carin van der Hor, the Philippines director for the children's charity Plan International, wrote Monday on Twitter as the storm approached.

Local authorities have done a better job of relocating people out of vulnerable areas and preparing evacuation centers this time around, according to the Philippine Red Cross.

Washi caught many residents off guard. It was a weaker storm, but its torrential rain triggered landslides and flash floods in the middle of the night, when many people were sleeping. More than 1,200 people died and hundreds of thousands were left homeless, prompting a humanitarian crisis.

Ahead of Bopha's arrival on Tuesday, government agencies relocated tens of thousands of people to evacuation centers. They also moved millions of dollars worth of relief supplies into position for quick delivery to storm-hit regions and put emergency crews, the military and hospitals on standby.

School classes were suspended in many cities, and dozens of flights were canceled, according to the national disaster agency. About 5,000 travelers were left stranded at ports across the country as of Wednesday because of disruption to ferry services.

Palau, a tiny island nation roughly 1,000 kilometers (600 miles) east of Mindanao, had a close shave with Bopha earlier in the week as the typhoon churned past, catching some outlying parts of the archipelago.
"It was headed right toward Palau," said Derek Williams, a meteorologist for the U.S. National Weather Service in Guam. But at the last minute, "it just turned to the west and fortunately went south of them," he said.

"I really think they escaped the brunt of the storm," Williams said in an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, noting that Palau doesn't usually get hit by strong typhoons.

Bopha nonetheless brought down a lot of trees and caused widespread power outages in Palau, according to Williams.

"The fast movement of the system really prevented a lot of flooding," he said. "I think probably only a few inches of rain fell, so that's certainly good news, because Palau itself is susceptible to mudslides."

The death toll continues to rise, those poor people are going through a nightmare......

Some photos frm BBC World News, 6 December 2012


In Pictures: Typhoon Bopha hits Philippines





Nasa released an image of the storm as it bore down on the Philippines with heavy rains and wind gusts of 210 km/h (130mph).




About 40,000 people were moved to temporary shelters in schools and village halls before the typhoon made landfall.




Many residents lost relatives as the cyclone devastated a wide swathe of the southern island of Mindanao.

The death toll from the powerful Typhoon Bopha - the strongest to have struck the Philippines this year - is continuing to rise.



Water catchment basins for farms on top of the mountains gave way because of the torrential rains, sending down large volumes of water.



"The waters came so suddenly and unexpectedly, and the winds were so fierce - that compounded the loss of lives," Compostela Valley's provincial governor told the Reuters news agency.



One of the worst hit areas was the Compostela Valley, a mining region where mudslides have destroyed entire villages. Roads to dozens of towns were impassable because of fallen trees and collapsed bridges, rescuers said



The typhoon destroyed around 80% of plantations - most of them banana farms - in Compostela Valley province, according to official estimates. Philippines is the world's third biggest
exporter of bananas.




The aid effort to help victims of the cyclone has begun with lists of relief supplies circulated at evacuation centres.

Death Toll From Typhoon Bopha Tops 1,000 in The Philippines


Residents gather their belongings after their house was destroyed by strong winds brought about by Typhoon Bophal earlier this month.


The grim toll from a typhoon that devastated southern Philippines earlier this month continues to climb, with 1,020 reported dead as of Sunday morning, authorities said.

Officials fear the toll from the December 4 storm will rise further. Because while rescue crews continue searching, the chances of finding people alive dim with each passing day.

With 844 still missing and 1.2 million families displaced, Bopha is the strongest and deadliest storm to hit the Philippines this year, according to the country's emergency management agency.

Among the missing are hundreds of fishermen who went to sea before the storm hit. Officials hope that they could yet be found sheltering on small islands out at sea.

If the death toll continues to rise, Bopha could eventually prove deadlier than Tropical Storm Washi, which killed 1,268 people a year ago.

But its toll would still remain far below that of Tropical Storm Thelma, the country's most lethal storm on record that left more than 5,000 people dead in 1991.

The worst of the death and destruction from Bopha took place on the southern island of Mindanao, where the storm hit first and hardest with gusts as strong as 220 kph (138 mph).

The storm, known locally as Pablo, was the most powerful typhoon to hit Mindanao in decades. It set off flash floods and landslides that engulfed people sheltering in their rickety houses in remote, unprepared regions of the island.
