We have been holding on updating this site for quite some time, but we feel the need to update our fellow Cadiznons and Negrenses about the Tropical Cyclone Yolanda which is reaching our shores. Updates on weather sites and social updates have only been updating for major Cities in Luzon and General Cities in the Visayas but we have not have specific updates for our area. We will try out updates in as much as laymen terms as possible.
Panay and Negros Islands (including Cadiz) will be in Signal Number 1 in the next 36 hours based on the data we gathered on several International Weather sites as in conjunction with the last updates of PAGASA. With speeds of 50 to 60kph while main eye of typhoon is at 250kph more or less. Main concern is the amount of rain and the rise of tides on the coastal area. This is set for November 7 from 12NN to Early Morning of November 9.
At this time, we urge you to prepare for floods and rains, all light materials should be held down like roofs, chairs and tables, especially when placed outside. All materials that can be lifted by strong winds should be held together and make sure small debris and rocks are away from windows. If you have tall trees with several bigger branches, it will be best to cut them down as early as today. Make sure all Electrical wires and appliances are pushed away on these tree branches as well as high enough in case of flooding.
Reserve, flashlights and candles for intermittent possible blackouts, and reserve as much water as possible. Since a flood of 2 to 3 days will also shut down our water supplies here in the City to prevent contamination and whatnot. Also it is advised to keep all your necessities like clothes, food and emergency equipment ready for any eventuality.
Don't forget to pray, so that by the time the typhoon hits our shores, it will have lesser impact and at least just become a tropical thunderstorm. We urge our people together to pray but as well to be prepared.
God Bless Us All!!!
