    Sep 29, 2022

    The country may expect six to nine more tropical cyclones until December, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) administrator Vicente Malano said Thursday.

    He said two to four tropical cyclones are expected in October; two to three in November; and up to two in December.

    Malano said the agency has prepared for strong tropical cyclones. These include hazard mapping and information campaigns.

    He said Pagasa has also identified areas that are prone to flooding, as well as safe areas. The hazard maps were provided to the local government units.

    Malano urged those in areas usually affected by strong winds to regularly check the integrity of houses and other structures.
