The 24-hr to 3-day Forecast shows 23W turning Westward upon passing over the Sulu Sea tomorrow afternoon and cross the Northern tip of Palawan tomorrow evening. 23W shall become a well-developed 130 km/hr Typhoon upon reaching the middle part of South China Sea by Thursday afternon, Nov 22...heading Westward towards Vietnam. + Effects: 23W's large rain circulation continues to affect and cover the whole area of the Visayas and Mindanao...bringing moderate to heavy rains with winds not exceeding 60 km/hr tonight and tomorrow..becoming more intense along Samar, Leyte, Cebu, Northern Negros, Masbate & Panay. Meanwhile, the Bicol Region remains under the outer rainbands of this depression. People living around the slopes of Mayon Volcano in Albay & of Bulusan Volcano in Sorsogon - especially along the areas where possible LAHAR FLOWS (mixture of volcanic mud and water) are located - must stay alert as moderate to heavy rains w/ some strong winds associated by this disturbance are likely to prevail today until tomorrow.
Maybe someone can refresh my memory, what year was it when the typhoon came ripping through Cebu, and directly across Mactan Island, I think a ship broke loose from it's mooring and hit the bridge, and that was the old bridge back then. Testing my memory, as I think I was up north then. 1992 or '93?
