Re: Typhoon Bopha makes unexpected turn, forecast to make landfall in the Philippines again Sunday!!! 647 DEATHS AND 780 MISSING IN THE FIRST PASSAGE
NEW BATAAN, Philippines -- A typhoon that killed nearly 600 people and left hundreds missing in the southern Philippines has made a U-turn and is now threatening the country's northwest

The country's weather bureau raised storm warnings over parts of the main northern island of Luzon today after Typhoon Bopha veered northeast. Forecasters say there's a strong possibility the storm would make a second landfall tomorrow, though it also could make a loop and remain in the South China Sea.

In either case, the storm is moving close to shore and disaster officials are warning of heavy rains and winds and possible landslides in the mountains.

Another calamity in the north would stretch recovery efforts thin. Most government resources, including army and police, are currently focused on the south, where the typhoon struck Tuesday.

Officials in the south say search teams are working without the help of local guides because many survivors there are still in shock.

Soldiers, police and outside volunteers continue to search for bodies or signs of life under the tons of fallen trees and boulders swept down from the steep hills that surround the worst-hit town of New Bataan.

Flash Flooding from Bopha was on going, some villages not flooded & lost til 3 days after Bopha left.

About 200 families of Montawal town in Maguindanao province and some 100 hectares of rice and corn farms in this province were devastated as flashfloods coming from the province of Bukidnon and Cagayan de Oro City overflowed Pulangi River, three days after typhoon Pablo (International name: Bopha) left Mindanao. In Kabacan town, 12 villages along Pulangi River and surrounding villages of Liguasan Marsh were flooded forcing some 1,730 residents to flee their homes. North Cotabato Governor Emmylou Talino-Mendoza said that villages situated along the Pulangi River in Kabacan, Pikit and Pigcawayan towns were inundated, as floodwaters entered their houses forcing residents to evacuate to the national highway and village halls. "When flashfloods hit Cagayan de Oro and Bukidnon, it usually overflows Pulangi River," Talino-Mendoza said, adding that the towns are amongst the low-lying areas of the province. From Bukidnon province, Pulangi River passes through Carmen and Kabacan towns and drains into the Liguasan Marsh. Montawal is part of the catchment basin of the Liguasan Marsh. abacan's Social Welfare and Development officer Susan Macalipat reported that affected with floodwaters are homes, school buildings and rice fields. Severely affected villages of Kabacan are Tamped, Semone, Kayaga, Kilagasan, Magatos, Lower Paatan, Cuyapon, Aringay, Simbuhay, Nangaan, Dalapuan and Salipungan - all are either located along Pulangi River or near the Liguasan Marsh. "Pulangi River overflowed; floodwaters entered schools, residences and submerged the ricefields," Macalipat said. The municipal agriculture is due to release its report on crops damages. Kabacan is a pre-dominantly rice field town.

[link to www.ssd.noaa.gov] One last post, though I already said good night, forgive me. The above loop show IMHO that low level circulation of Bopha had been decoupled from the rest of the typhoon. Hence the variety of predictions; look at the discussion (NAVY):

"B. TY 26W WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK EASTWARD OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS
UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE STR BUT IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN
RAPIDLY DUE TO STRONG VWS AND SOME INTERACTION WITH LUZON.
THEREAFTER, AS THE CYCLONE CONTINUES TO WEAKEN, IT IS EXPECTED TO
MOVE EQUATORWARD AND WESTWARD FOLLOWING THE LOW LEVEL FLOW. THE
DYNAMIC AIDS, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF WBAR AND GFS, ARE IN GOOD
AGREEMENT WITH THE TRACK FORECAST THROUGH TAU 72. WBAR AND GFS ARE
CONSIDERED HIGHLY UNREALISTIC SINCE THEY BOTH TRACK THE SYSTEM INTO
A ZONE OF HIGH VWS ASSOCIATED WITH STRONG UPPER-LEVEL WESTERLIES AND
A STRONG NORTHEAST SURGE. ANALYSIS OF GFS 850MB VORTICITY FIELDS
SHOWS RAPID WEAKENING OF THE SYSTEM WEST OF LUZON AND A QUICK TURN
SOUTHWARD; THE GFS VORTEX TRACKER APPEARS TO BE ERRONEOUSLY JUMPING
THE CENTER EASTWARD TO ANOTHER VORTICITY MAXIMUM ASSOCIATED WITH A
SHEAR LINE POSITIONED EAST OF LUZON. GIVEN THE SPREAD IN THE MODEL
TRACK GUIDANCE AND HIGH TRACK DEPENDENCE ON THE INTENSITY, FORECAST
CONFIDENCE THROUGH TAU 72 REMAINS LOW.
C. AFTER TAU 72, TY 26W IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING
SOUTHWESTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF LOW-LEVEL NORTHEASTERLY FLOW
AND WEAKEN DUE TO ONGOING VWS AND DRY AIR ENTRAINMENT. THERE IS
CONSIDERABLE UNCERTAINTY IN THE EXTENDED TRACK FORECAST GIVEN THE
EXPECTED LOOPING MOTION AND A SPREAD IN ALONG-TRACK FORECAST SPEEDS
AMONG CONSENSUS MODEL MEMBERS. EXTENDED FORECAST TRACK CONFIDENCE
REMAINS LOW.//

Moreover there is an interesting little blob with some turning behind Bopha. Probably nothing serious? [link to www.usno.navy.mil] rel="nofollow" target="_blank [link to rammb.cira.colostate.edu] [link to www.wunderground.com]

Re: Typhoon Bopha makes unexpected turn, forecast to make landfall in the Philippines again Sunday!!! 647 DEATHS AND 780 MISSING IN THE FIRST PASSAGE
A powerful typhoon that has killed hundreds of people and wreaked devastation in the Philippines was set to smash into the country again Sunday, forecasters warned.


Typhoon Bopha had looked to be heading away after destroying whole communities in the south, but the official weather agency said Saturday it had unexpectedly turned and would make landfall again, this time in the north.

The agency urged people to prepare for fierce winds of up to 160 kilometres (about 100 miles) an hour and heavy rains when the storm slams into the northern tip of the main island of Luzon in the early hours.

The surprise development piles more pressure on a country that has called for international aid for the south, where floods and landslides sparked by Bopha have flattened whole villages and left tens of thousands of people homeless.

A United Nations aid assessment team flew to the southern island of Mindanao, which bore the brunt of the devastation, on Saturday and witnessed "100 percent destruction", said Imogen Wall, spokeswoman for the UN office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs.

"This is a very poor area where everyone is dependent on agriculture. If people can't earn money from crops they won't be able to put food on the table for their families,'' she told AFP by telephone.

"They'll need a lot of help in the coming months. This is going to take a long time.''

Bopha, the strongest typhoon to hit the disaster-prone Philippines this year, barrelled into Mindanao from the Pacific Ocean with gusts of up to 210 kilometres an hour on Tuesday.

At least 548 people have so far been confirmed dead and about 500 others are missing. Around 212,000 others have been left homeless, according to the civil defence office.

In the isolated hamlet of Marapat on Saturday, about 4,000 survivors had only coconuts to eat, as no substantial aid was yet to reach them, said nursing mother Virginia Dodres.

All the houses had been carried off by floods, and survivors were sleeping 80 to a room on the bare concrete floor of the local school.

They share its two toilets and are doing their washing and bathing at a nearby spring, which is also their only source of water.

Dodres, 38, said church workers with two big pots of porridge arrived Saturday, the first and only relief aid yet to the hamlet, which is near the devastated town of New Bataan. The food was gobbled up within minutes.

Officials said Mindanao's east coast and the banana plantations and illegal gold mines around New Bataan accounted for all but 42 of the known deaths from the typhoon.

Twenty-six corpses were put into donated white wooden coffins and laid on a muddy open space where the New Bataan public market used to stand. A few relatives, and flies attended to them.

Jing Maniqued, an unmarried 37-year-old who previously worked as a maid abroad, did not know where to bury her two sisters since the cemetery had itself been covered by debris. Her parents and a mother are still missing.

"There's nothing left for us here. We will probably leave,'' she told AFP.

Cedric Daep, a public safety specialist, said desperate survivors looted shops and warehouses in Cateel, one of three hard-hit towns on the Mindanao coast in the early aftermath of Bopha's landfall there.

"The food aid took so long to arrive that the locals broke into whatever building (was) left standing in search of something to eat,'' said Daep, who was sent to the south to help organise the disaster response.

Pope Benedict XVI issued a call for "brotherly solidarity'' and said he was praying for "the victims, their families and the many homeless'' in Asia's largest Catholic outpost, where 80 percent are followers of the religion.

Re: Typhoon Bopha makes unexpected turn, forecast to make landfall in the Philippines again Sunday!!! 647 DEATHS AND 780 MISSING IN THE FIRST PASSAGE
December 9, 2012 – MANILA – Heavy rain brought flooding fears in the north of the storm-battered Philippines as Typhoon Bopha returned today, days after slamming into the south of the country and leaving almost 1,400 dead or missing. While the powerful typhoon had weakened to a tropical storm, it was still causing downpours in the north even as hundreds in the south struggled to recover from its fury, said civil defense chief Benito Ramos. “It will bring rain, not so much wind. We anticipate flash floods and landslides. We expect low-lying areas to be flooded again,” Ramos told AFP. Local relief and rescue teams along with the military were in position while residents were on alert for rising waters. Officials said 548 people are confirmed dead after Bopha struck last week. The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said 827 are missing, a sharp rise on earlier estimates of about 500 unaccounted for. Most deaths were in Mindanao where mountainous gold-rush sites were hit hard. Almost 178,000 people were still in crowded evacuation centers. Ramos said the massive death toll in Mindanao had made residents in the north more cautious. “They are more alert now. They were watching developments in the south where we incurred a substantial number of casualties and they were alarmed,” he said. Despite Bopha’s weakening, the second-level of a three-step storm alert was raised over three northern provinces. Lower alerts were hoisted over surrounding areas, the government weather station said. Bopha struck the southern Philippines last week, wiping whole towns off the map with its 210km per hour winds and heavy rains. The strongest typhoon to hit the country this year cut through the central islands and was heading out to the South China Sea when it made a U-turn towards the north this weekend. Early Sunday Bopha was just off the northern city of Laoag, packing gusts of 120km per hour as it moved east at 15km per hour, the station said. –Sun Daily [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

Hundreds of fishermen missing in Philippine storm

NEW BATAAN, Philippines (AP) - The number of people missing after a typhoon devastated parts of the southern Philippines jumped to nearly 900 after families and fishing companies reported losing contact with more than 300 fishermen at sea, officials said Sunday.

The fishermen from southern General Santos city and nearby Sarangani province left a few days before Typhoon Bopha hit the main southern island of Mindanao on Tuesday, triggering flash floods that killed more than 600, Civil Defense chief Benito Ramos said.

Ramos said the fishermen were headed to the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea and to the Pacific Ocean. He said there has been no contact from them for a week.
"We have declared them missing," he said. "Maybe they are still alive."

Ramos said they may have sought shelter on the many small islands in the Spratlys and the Celebes Sea, and lost battery power and have not been able to call.

He said the coast guard, navy and fishing vessels have launched a search.

Description
A typhoon that had left the Philippines after killing nearly 600 people and leaving hundreds missing in the south has made a U-turn and is now threatening the country's northwest, officials said Saturday. The weather bureau raised storm warnings over parts of the main northern island of Luzon after Typhoon Bopha veered northeast. There was a strong possibility the disastrous storm would make a second landfall Sunday, but it might also make a loop and remain in the South China Sea, forecasters said. In either case, it was moving close to shore and disaster officials warned of heavy rains and winds and possible landslides in the mountainous region. Another calamity in the north would stretch recovery efforts thin. Most government resources, including army and police, are currently focused on the south, where Bopha hit Tuesday before moving west into the South China Sea. With many survivors still in shock, soldiers, police and outside volunteers formed most of the teams searching for bodies or signs of life under tons of fallen trees and boulders swept down from steep hills surrounding the worst-hit town of New Bataan, municipal spokesman Marlon Esperanza said.

"We are having a hard time finding guides," he said. "Entire families were killed and the survivors ... appear dazed. They can't move." He said the rocks, mud, tree trunks and other rubble that litter the town have destroyed landmarks, making it doubly difficult to search places where houses once stood. On Friday, bodies found jammed under fallen trees that could not be retrieved were marked with makeshift flags made of torn cloth so they could be easily spotted by properly equipped teams. Authorities decided to bury unidentified bodies in a common grave after forensic officials process them for future identification by relatives, Esperanza said. The town's damaged public market has been converted into a temporary funeral parlor. A few residents milled around two dozen white wooden coffins, some containing unidentified remains.

As of late Sunday, however, it had begun to dissipate and weaken into a low pressure area as it moved farther into the South China Sea, about 65 miles west of the Philippines' Ilocos Norte province. Rescuers continued searching for bodies or signs of life under tons of fallen trees and boulders in the worst-hit town of New Bataan, where rocks, mud and other rubble destroyed landmarks, making it doubly difficult to search places where houses once stood.

I lost contact with Rodrigo and his family Saturday night when his cell phone finally lost it's charge. They have not had food or clean drinking water since the Typhoon hit on Tuesday. I am leaving out first thing in the morning with food, water, and medicines. If a few people will send just a little bit I can get more supplies on this run and be able to help even more people in Baganga. Thank You!
