If I were looking at the satellite map from abroad, I would easily imagine torrential rains flooding and winds etc.
I`m actually in  the midst of it all and I doubt I could fly a kite right now.. No rain either just jet.

First storm damage here this afternoon albeit very minor. A branch came off a gmelina tree in a wind gust which is no big deal but it took out two lanzone trees I'd been growing for several years.

Power's been off since early morning and all flights to/from the island canceled today and tomorrow.

Kind of a non-event so far but waiting to see if there's any major flooding around midnight during high tide which would affect the fishermen and their families who live along the river.

Looks like the storm did a little wobble there. That's good news that it is weakening. Still a lot of rain coming though.

Forced evacuations of my neighbors started at 6 AM this (Sunday) morning. The gov't will put them up in the municipal gym for a day or two until this thing blows over. Nobody's complaining as the water level is already up to the bamboo floorboards of their nipa stilt houses. Plus they'll all get some free meals out of it. Very hard to predict the water levels of a tidal river just downstream from some mountains, the hourly changes can be drastic. Playing it safe is a good thing.

Our lawyer was coming over from the mainland today for a land hearing on Monday morning. Signal #2 got raised at 5 AM though so definitely no boats going anywhere anytime soon.

Here's the 8 AM TCWS update:

Two inches (five cm) of rain an hour all  afternoon according to my rain gauge. Precipitation aside, the real impressive part has been the intense thunder and lightening show we've had for the past hour as it nears sunset. Just wow. Wind is just enough to sway the coconut palms but nothing more. But that lightening!
