By DOST Project NOAH, PAGASA Storm Surge Component

This list is a refined version of PAGASA’s general advisory for storm surges and is issued more than a day ahead of Typhoon Ruby’s (Hagupit) landfall. It serves as a guideline for timely, steady and organized evacuation of communities, residents and families living in the affected areas. According to PAGASA’s Severe Weather Bulletin Number Ten, those living in coastal areas under signal no. 3 are alerted against possible occurrence of 4.5-meter storm surges. Do not evacuate during the typhoon as flying debris caused by strong winds can cause fatal casualties and loss.

    • Thanks for the info.
      #Storm Prayer Brigade: Almighty Father, as typhoon Ruby nears, we plead for Your Mercy and pray that You spare our country and people further devastationans deaths from nature’s wrath; we claim by faith You alone can calm this storm, in Jesus Mighty Name, AMEN!

  1. Nawala yung “click on the municipality to show the surge map feature.” Kanina it was working perfectly fine. Please put it back as i was using it to send out emails and media blitz in our area. thank you.

  5. Just wondering why there are no storm surge data for some critical areas like Tacloban, Palo, Tanauan, Tolosa, and Dulag. These areas were severely affected by last year’s storm Yolanda especially by deadly storm surges. If NOAH doesn’t have the facilities to measure possible storm surges in these places, what would be the listed municipalities would we refer to as comparable to our situation? Thanks.

  6. PAGASA may need to consider the effect of high tide on typhoon Ruby.

    I made a call to my family in the province just tonight to check on them. Talking with my father, he asked me to reach out PAGASA for possible consideration on the effect of high tide/full moon on typhoon Ruby as he did not notice TV or radio news on this.

    We should call to mind that on Saturday, December 6, 2014 is a full moon. This means that the rise of the sea level or high tide can be expected as a combined effect of the gravitational forces exerted by the moon and sun and the rotation of the earth. While some locations experience only one high tide, ours in Northern Samar, we experience two (2) high tides in a day.

    Based on the news, the typhoon continued to gather strength as it moved over water. The rise of sea level is on the assumption of a normal scenario of a storm surge. Considering possible effect of the high tide, this would cause a much higher rise of the sea level. Storm surge on a high tide can be more intense.

    In short, the data disclosed by PAGASA through the local TV station maybe considerably underestimated.

    We could save more lives by helping one another – with the sharing of experience, knowledge, or simply passing on information to those who might be affected … let’s act the part.

  7. we appreciate all the research and hardwork put into this. keep up the great work and i hope the government sees the things that your office does. hopefully it will learn that agencies like you should be prioritized over other less important matters to give a budget on.

  15. ‘we appreciate all the research and hardwork put into this. keep up the great work and i hope the government sees the things that your office does. hopefully it will learn that agencies like you should be prioritized over other less important matters to give a budget on.’ I strongly agree to this comment. tp project NOAH Philippines, kudos!

  16. Yesterday, I was looking for Tacloban City but I didn’t find it in the Storm Surge Advisory list. Does this mean Tacloban is not in danger of storm surge? Naval, Biliran was in the list yesterday; today, however, it is not anymore in the list. Does this mean also that we do not have to worry about storm surge in Naval?

  17. Good job, DOST-PAGASA! Our disaster consciousness and preparedness is already triggered by information contained in the Project NOAH site. Thank you!
    Our people are now planning ahead before nature’s wrath, good sense of preparation. May God spare us and make us safe!

  18. i hope every people in the Phillipines especially the Buhi may be safe.lord god you are the hero of all people in the world.i know you are doing this to learn the people to be responsible and be always love our nature.I wish this typhoon is not so hard.God cover the world us and protect the people.your my hero and i know you will guide and protect my family and people.

  22. DOST should be given an attention by our government, upgraded apparatus and facilities be supplied so it can better serve the people to gives detailed information when storms strikes. May all public servants take heed of the things that needs an attention regardless of what political party you belong.

  23. Thanks a lot Project NOAH, indeed a big help…
