Here's the latest on Typhoon Pepeng (Parma) and Typhoon Quedan (Melor) update.
Typhoon Quedan (Melor) had not totally entered and hit the Philippines, in fact, continued to wreak havoc in Japan. Typhoon Quedan (Melor) caused too much devastation in Japan particularly on infrastructures. Check out these videos of typhoon Melor's destruction in Japan:



On the other hand, typhoon Pepeng (Parma) continues to move westward slowly. At 5:00AM today, it's center was in the vicinity of Ilocos Sur or at 60 kms North Northwest of Baguio City. Public Storm Warning Signal elsewhere is now lowered. Signal No. 1 at Cagayan, Isabela, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, Apayao, Abra, Kalinga, Ifugao, Mountain Province, Benguet, La Union, Pangasinan, Nueva Viscaya, Quirino, Aurora, Nueva Ecija, Tarlac, Pampanga, Zambales, Bataan and Bulacan.

Here's the devastating effect of typhoon Pepeng's overstay in northern Luzon. According to the latest report, there are at least 9 barangays in Zambales that were still flooding.



In Benguet, continuous heavy rains brought by typhoon Pepeng, now degraded into a tropical depression, caused a landslide in Sitio Sto. Nino, killing a still unidentified child and a pregnant woman in the area, according to OCD-CAR officer-in-charge Olive Luces. People from nearby provinces were advised to refrain from going to Benguet and Baguio City as of the moment, since several of the major roads leading to these areas have become impassable due to landslides and falling rocks.

Also, Rizal province and Metro Manila, are facing long power outages after a fire forced the shutdown of a power transformer in Taytay last Wednesday. Eleven cities and towns in eastern Metro Manila and Rizal province were subjected to rotating blackouts yesterday.
The rotating blackouts that the Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) had hoped to end today are expected to drag on after three of its substations tripped “due to critical loading and in its attempt to shift load” to compensate for the shutdown of the Dolores substation of the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP).
