With Tropical Storm Lando approaching the country, the Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards (NOAH) under the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) released a list of areas that may receive greater than 100mm of rainfall within 24 hours per day for the next four days (October 17-20, Saturday-Tuesday). With this amount of rainfall, flooding and landslide are likely.
On October 18 and 19, some parts of the National Capital Region may receive greater than 100mm of rainfall particularly some areas in Manila, Makati, Pateros, Taguig, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Pasig, Quezon City, San Juan, Caloocan, Navotas, and Valenzuela.
The full list of areas can be found here.
Lando is expected to make landfall between Saturday late evening and Sunday morning over Aurora/Isabela.
PAGASA weather forecasting chief Rene Paciente said in the latest Lando update that he does not expect this typhoon to have the same rainfall as Tropical Storm Ondoy since the latter storm was enhanced by the southwest monsoon.
In 2009, Ondoy, which is one of the most devastating tropical cyclones to hit the country that caused a massive flood in Metro Manila, dumped about 455mm of rainfall over a 24-hour period.
