“PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES: (for signal # 3)
- The disturbance is dangerous to the communities threatened/affected.
- The sea and coastal waters will be very dangerous to all seacrafts.
- Travel is very risky especially by sea and air.
- People are advised to seek shelter in strong buildings, evacuate low-lying areas and to stay away from the coasts and river banks.
- Watch out for the passage of the “eye” of the typhoon indicated by a sudden occurrence of fair weather immediately after very bad weather with very strong winds coming generally from the north.
- When the “eye” of the typhoon hit the community do not venture away from the safe shelter because after one to two hours the worst weather will resume with the very strong winds coming from the south.
- Classes in all levels should be suspended and children should stay in the safety of strong buildings.
- Disaster preparedness and response agencies/organizations are in action with appropriate response to actual emergency.
