‘Lawin’ landfall Thursday

Typhoon “Lawin” (international name “Haima”) continues to gradually gain intensity and could reach super typhoon category before its expected landfall over Cagayan province on Thursday.

Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio warned the public, especially those still reeling from the devastation caused by typhoon “Karen,” as Lawin’s winds and rains could cause severe damage due to the typhoon’s huge diameter of 650 kilometers, which could cover the whole Northern and Central Luzon.

The eye of typhoon Lawin is threatening to pass through Cagayan province by early Thursday then will cross Apayao and Ilocos Norte by morning on its way to the West Philippine Sea. (Ellalyn de Vera)
