Emergency Appeal: Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco)


Typhoon “Ulysses” (international name “Vamco”) has made its third landfall in the vicinity of General Nakar, Quezon at 1:40 A.M. on November 12, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

PAGASA said as of 1 AM today, the center of the eye of Typhoon “Ulysses” was estimated at 30 km North of Infanta, Quezon and at 1:40 a.m. was located in the vicinity of General Nakar, Quezon.

With maximum sustained winds of 155 km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 255 km/h, the tropical cyclone was moving west northwestward at 20 km/h.

Based on the Severe Weather Bulletin No. 18 issued at 2:00 a.m., the typhoon is forecast to cross Central Luzon and emerge over the western seaboard of Zambales this morning. 

“After making landfall at peak intensity, the typhoon is forecast to slightly weaken while crossing Central Luzon due to frictional effects in the presence of the Sierra Madre and Zambales Mountain Ranges. However, it is likely to remain a typhoon throughout its traverse,” read the bulletin.

On the forecast track, PAGASA said the typhoon may exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility tomorrow morning or afternoon.
