Vongfong will continue its route over the center of the Philippines for the next 24 to 48 hours before crossing Luzon. A passage near the capital Manila is not excluded. The typhoon should lose intensity over the archipelago.
PAGASA warns of a possible storm surge over the coastal areas of northern Samar, Eastern Samar (east coast), Samar (west coast), Sorsogon, Albay, Catanduanes, Camarines, Camarines North, Quezon and Aurora . This phenomenon is the most dangerous associated with cyclones.
Note that the Philippines is one of the regions in the world most exposed to cyclones. The archipelago is regularly hit by strong typhoons. Haiyan in 2013 remains the most significant event of recent years. On average, 8 to 9 systems cross the Philippines per season.
