Manila, Philippines – CONSIDERED AS the strongest typhoon to hit the Philippines this year, Filipinos should get ready for Super Typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan), which has already entered the Philippine area of responsibility Thursday morning. It is expected to hit the country on Friday, November 8.

The Department of Science and Technology-PAG-ASA (DOST-PAG-ASA) has already issued warning at 3:26am today that moderate to occasional heavy rains will be affecting several Visayas and Mindanao provinces and will stay in the next 2-3 hours.

Yolanda is posing a serious danger to lives and property across the country as it has a maximum sustained winds of 240 kph (150 mph).

Accuweather.com report said the exceptionally dangerous storm has “strengthened into the strongest tropical system in the world for the 2013 season as estimated by wind speed and central pressure.”

Its strength is equivalent to a Category 5 or a strong Category 4 hurricane, reports said. Yolanda will cross over the Philippines till Friday night.

It will hit parts of Central Visayas and most of Luzon and Mindanao, including the greater Metro Manila area. Residents are advised to stay at home in safe, dry areas all day Friday. The typhoon will leave the PAR on Saturday morning on its way to Vietnam.
