UPDATE: Typhoon Kammuri


The UK FCO warns travellers that Typhoon Kammuri has made land fall in Northern Luzon and is expected to continue to affect the Philippines until December 4.

Typhoon Kammuri is expected to strengthen to the equivalent of a Category 3 hurricane by Tuesday, December 3, CNN reports.

Southern Luzon is currently experiencing winds of 150 km/h but those are expected to speed up to 185 km/h. The region is forecast to receive 20-30 cm of rain, which will bring a risk of flash flooding and mudslides.

Typhoon Kammuri is expected to make landfall in northern Luzon early in the week beginning December 2.

The UK FCO advises travellers to monitor local media and the Philippines Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council for the latest updates.
A strengthening typhoon will approach the Philippines through the weekend and could become dangerous during the first week of December, AccuWeather reports.

From Thursday, November 28, Kammuri was categorised as a typhoon with wind speeds of 120 km/h.

Heavy rain leading to flooding and mudslides is expected, with areas across the Philippines from Samar Island and northern Panay Island through Luzon at risk of effects of the typhoon.

Travellers are advised to check weather reports.
