A tropical Depression called 27W, is increasing in strength and moving towards the area of Cebu. The latest satellite imagery shows a large formation of rain and wind, south-east of Mindanao, moving westerly towards Cebu, and Bantayan Island.
Last night, we experienced strong winds and rain on the shores of Santa Fe, with calm winds and cloudy skies this Thursday morning.
If you are planning a trip to Bantayan Island for the next few days, you may want to consider putting it on hold until this Tropical system passes. It is likely that by Tomorrow morning ferry service will be halted as seas will be very rough and dangerous.
It would be wise to stock up now on a few food items and drinking water, as well as batteries for you flashlight, in the event this tropical depression does grow into a signal 1 or 2 Typhoon.
