The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) expects up to three typhoons to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) in the month of June 2021.

The weather bureau is currently tracking two of these three tropical cyclones and their possible paths (the third is still being determined as of this writing) and is anticipating that these typhoons may enter PAR in the next two weeks. Filipinos are expected to brace for moderate to heavy rains, flash floods, and high winds, especially in Central and Eastern Visayas, Bicol Region, Southern Luzon, and Metro Manila (as two of the three typhoons are expected to pass through this corridor).

Typhoon Dante Precedes the June 2021 Typhoons with Agua De Mayo Entrance

This, in light of Typhoon Dante’s entry into PAR last Sunday, May 30, at 625 km east of Davao City. Typhoon Dante is expected to move upwards, on a northwest path, 430 km east of Surigao City, and continuing on this trajectory upwards to the Visayas, 225 km off the coast of Catarman, Northern Samar, and to Luzon moving up, 390 km off Baler, Aurora, and is expected to turn slowly east, near the top of the archipelago and leave PAR by Saturday, June 5, 2021.

Expect Heavy Rains and Flash Floods

While Typhoon Dante isn’t expected to make landfall, its rainbands (outer edges) will be passing through the country’s eastern side---car owners, beware---Pagasa warns residents in these areas to expect moderate to heavy rainfall, as well as flash floods. No storm signals have been announced as of this writing.

For times like these, it is vital to ensure that your family, assets, and belongings are safe and dry. Water damage from flooding is a serious matter, especially for your home and transportation. So make sure your motorcycles and cars are tucked safe in the next few days and double-check your vehicle’s insurance policies handy in case the unintended occurs. If you don’t have auto insurance, consider getting one, especially when acts of nature like Typhoon Dante are expected to bring floods, landslides, and torrential rain.
