Glenda expected to batter Metro Manila today

Typhoon Rammasun or locally known as Typhoon Glenda is expected to hit Metro Manila this morning. The weather bureau says they expect the typhoon to hit Metro Manila between this hour and the next yet the effects will last until this evening.

The eye of Typhoon Rammasun is now very close to the south of Manila. According to the weather channel (www.weather.com)

"PAGASA said the center of Rammasun was approximately 30 miles south of Manila as of 5 a.m. Wednesday local time. The center is now near its closest approach to the capital city. The typhoon's highest winds appear to be confined to the eyewall, with wind speeds dropping off drastically just a few dozen miles away from the eye. 
The eye is passing slightly south of Metro Manila, making a direct strike on the provinces of Batangas and Cavite. The two provinces, which are not officially part of Metro Manila, have a combined population of over 5.3 million people in an area roughly the size of Delaware."

Friends, stay safe. Prepare. Pray.
