Catandunganons run to Capitol as they brace for ‘Nina’
Some 15 families have sought refuge at the Catanduanes’ Capitol Dome ahead of the expected landfall of typhoon “Nina” on the province on Christmas Day Sunday.
A Facebook post from Catanduanes Governor Joseph Cua Saturday night bared that the evacuating families cam from Barangay Francia Virac.
“#KapitolyoParaSaLahat #BagyongNinaPH #KeepSafeCatandunganons” read the post, as if to tell constituents that everyone is welcome to ride out the storm there.
Nina, which carries the international name Nock-Ten, is packing winds of up to 215 kilometers per hour, the
Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has reported.
The typhoon is expected to make landfall on Catanduanes either on Sunday afternoon or evening (December 25).
Tropical cyclone warning signal no. 3 has already been hoisted by PAGASA over Catanduanes, as well as three other Bicol provinces. These are Albay, Camarines Sur and Camarines Norte.
