Tropical Depression 30W (Wilma) has maintained its strength and still threatens the quake-ravaged areas of the Visayas with heavy rains that can cause flashfloods and landslides.
Meanwhile, Tropical Depression 31W has intensified into a Storm... internationally named as HAIYAN.

With maximum winds of 65 kph near the center and was moving westward at 30 kph in the general direction of the Caroline Islands-Micronesia Area. Various dynamic forecast models indicate this system will rapidly intensified into a powerful Typhoon and has the potential of becoming our next Super Typhoon due to the warm sea surface temperatures along its track. The models also show a very rapid movement towards Central Philippines w/ a possible landfall over Eastern Visayas-Bicol Area on November 08 (Friday). The public are advised to monitor this dangerous threat as its formative location is similar to that of last year's STY BOPHA (PABLO).
Residents and visitors along Northeastern Mindanao, Visayas and Palawan should closely monitor the development of 30W (Wilma).
