State weather bureau PAGASA said the country can expect up to two tropical cyclones to enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) this month.
The cyclones will be called “Rosal” and “Samuel” once inside the monitoring area.
According to weather specialist Benison Estareja, cyclones that form in December have a higher chance of making a landfall. He also said that there is a possibility that they will be strong and may reach typhoon and super typhoon categories.
Storms are becoming more powerful and destructive as the world becomes warmer because of climate change, scientists have warned. The Philippines is one of the world’s most vulnerable countries to the effects of the climate crisis.
