    Typhoon “Sendong”, Signal 1 For Cebu and Bantayan Island

    The National Weather Service has advised that Tropical Storm “Sendong” has developed into a Typhoon. Over Mindanao, Leyte and Bohol, Typhoon Sendong will increase in strength to a Signal Number 2 Typhoon. Cebu and Bantayan Island will experience Signal Number 1 conditions for the next 36 hours.

    Wind and waves around Bantayan Island today will increase as Typhoon Sendong passes lower Cebu. The outlying band of clouds carrying moisture will effect Bantayan Island with heavy rainfall at times over the next 36 hours.

    It is advisable that you check the ferry schedule in Hagnaya and Santa Fe before attempting a crossing to or from Bantayan Island. Ferry service was concealed all day for Bantayan Island today, Friday, December 16, 2011. It appears highly likely that there will also be no ferry service to or from Bantayan Island tomorrow, Saturday December 17, 2011.

    At 4:30 pm, a large band of rain clouds entered the Santa Fe Municipality area of Bantayan Island with strong rain, wind and minor flooding. It appears that this heavy rain will continue throughout the night and into Saturday morning.
