RELATED:
* At least 7 people killed after Super Typhoon Haima smashes into Philippines
* Rising seas will displace mns of people - and Australia must be ready
* Good weather or your money back: how extreme weather could change holidays

The most powerful typhoon of the season is closing in on the northern
Philippines, where officials ordered precautionary evacuations and
closures of schools and offices and urged farmers to quickly harvest
their crops to reduce damage.

Key points:
* Typhoon Mangkut has recorded winds of 265kph
* Potential for storm surges, flooding and landslides increase the risks
* The typhoon is the 15th storm to batter the Philippines this year

Forecasters said Typhoon Mangkhut, considered the strongest this year,
could hit northern Cagayan province on Sat.

It was located about 800 kilometres away in the Pacific with sustained
winds of 265 kilometres per hour and gusts of up to 325kph.

It could maintain the strength of a super typhoon when it hits land in
the north-eastern corner of Luzon Island, which is home to about 48
mn people.

With a massive rain band 900 kilometres wide, combined with seasonal
monsoon rains, the storm could bring heavy to intense rains that could
set off landslides and flash floods, state forecaster Meno Mendoza said.

Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba said that authorities in northern
coastal and island villages in the typhoon's projected path will begin
evacuating residents ahead of the expected onslaught.

He said classes will be suspended and offices, except those involved
in rescue and relief work, had been advised to close on Fri.

In 2016, a super typhoon lashed the southern section of Cagayan,
destroying tens of 1000s of houses.

Mangkhut is blowing from the Pacific and forecast to directly slam the
province's north-eastern coastal and island municipalities, Mr Mamba said.

"I'm stressing that this one is very different - this is more
complicated because of possible storm surges," Mr Mamba said,
referring to giant waves whipped inland by a typhoon.

Harvest threatened amid rice shortages

The typhoon is arriving at the start of the rice and corn harvest
season in Cagayan, a major agricultural producer, and farmers were
scrambling to save what they could of their crops, Mr Mamba said.

The Philippines has been trying to cope with rice shortages.

Office of Civil Defence chief Ricardo Jalad said other northern
provinces will also start evacuating residents from low-lying areas.

"The worst cases are those areas which will be directly hit by strong
winds that can topple houses, storm surges and heavy rains that can
cause flooding, and there may be landslides in higher areas," Mr Jalad said.

After leaving the Philippines, the fast-moving storm is expected to
blow toward Hong Kong and southern China on Sun if it maintains its
course, forecasters said.

Mangkhut is the 15th storm this year to batter the Philippines, which
is hit by about 20 a year and is considered one of the world's most
disaster-prone countries.

Typhoon Haiyan left more than 7,300 people dead or missing and
displaced more than 5 mn in the central Philippines in 2013.

Please post your weather reports in the weather group. Thank you.


Info for Horse smell.... :

The Pacific season runs throughout 2018, though most tropical cyclones typically develop between May and October.

Historically... the Philippines get hit by more tropical cyclones/typhoons... than any other region on Earth.

Ignorant Horse smell is shocked and surprised...
