Metro Manila as well as the whole of Luzon will experienced heavy rainfall as typhoon “Rolly” (international name: “Goni”) approaches the Bicol region Saturday night, October 31, 2020, as the weather system maintains its strength while moving west-southwest over the Philippine sea.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) in its 8 a.m. severe weather advisories, beginning Saturday night, heavy to intense rains will be experienced in Metro Manila, Bicol region, Calabarzon region (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon), Central Luzon, Marinduque, and the northern portions of Occidental and Oriental Mindoro.

Meanwhile, moderate to heavy rains will also be experienced over the Cagayan, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, and Quirino.

Pagasa warned of rough seas, storm surges and possible flashfloods and landslides in affected areas.

The weather bureau reported that “Rolly” was last spotted 540 kilometers east northeast of Virac, Catanduanes with maximum sustained winds of 215 kilometers per hour near the center (kph), gustiness of up to 265 kph and moving west at 20 kph.

State meteorologists said that the eye of “Rolly” is forecast to pass very close to Catanduanes in the early hours of Sunday, then over the Calaguas Islands and very close to mainland Camarines provinces Sunday morning, and over Polillo Islands and mainland Quezon Sunday afternoon or evening.

“However, due to the proximity of the forecast track to Bicol region, a landfall scenario over Catanduanes and Camarines provinces is not ruled out,” state weather bureau said.

Pagasa added that it is not ruling out the possibility that “Rolly” may intensify to a super typhoon.
