The typhoon came to an end when it made its second landfall on Wednesday afternoon Eastern Time, and the storm had already crossed the Putnam and Polillo Islands in Quezon. The system is landing in the General Quezonaka area about 40 to 50 miles northeast of Manila.
On landing, it remained at “peak intensity” and the wind was in the category 2 range. The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has hoisted a signal 3 warning level 1 to 5 in most areas of Luzon (including Metro Manila). The gusts are expected to be between 75 and 1
PAGASA predicts “major damage to high-risk structures”, indicating that “damage to dilapidated residential structures and lightweight materials houses may increase…”. It is expected that rice, corn and banana plants will be severely damaged.
“A large-scale disruption of power and communication services” is also expected.
The southern wing of Vamco’s eye wall may scratch Manila, where there are nearly 2 million people, with wind speeds of 80 to 90 mph.
The Polillo Islands and Catandunes, which Goni made landfall earlier this month, are expected to experience storm surges 7 to 10 feet from Vamco. In Manila, the northwesterly wind towards the west coast of Luzon is expected to surge by 4 to 6 feet.
On November 1, passengers taking a flight from Ninoy Aquino International Airport were trapped when Super Typhoon Goni (Storm) rushed north, while more than 1,300 other people found themselves forced to be on the basketball court , The school and church got through the difficult times. A new bill calls on Philippine leaders to establish permanent shelters that can be used in emergency situations such as Vamco, because many shelters have been used to treat coronavirus patients.
At the same time, “rain-induced landslides” are expected to occur, and there may be five to ten inches of heavy rain near the center of the Vamco path. The upwind (east) side of the Sierra Madre Mountains in Luzon may have a total of 12 to 18 inches.
After Vamco encounters land problems, it may weaken some strength, and then cross the Vietnam China Sea to the south. Then, due to low-end typhoons or strong tropical storms, it may maintain its strength near central or northern Vietnam on Friday local time.
