Daily Noon Briefing Highlights – 26 September 2022
In the Philippines, Tropical Cyclone Noru underwent an explosive intensification over the weekend and became a super Typhoon known as Noru. It made landfall yesterday in Quezon Province, east of the capital Manila.
This marks one of the fastest rapid intensifications of a tropical cyclone ever recorded in the Pacific basin. Authorities say that more than 2,400 families were pre-emptively evacuated and it is estimated that some 16,000 hectares of agricultural areas have been damaged.
The Government is leading response efforts, and response and clearing operations have already begun in affected areas. We have expressed our readiness to support the response and, in close consultation with local and national authorities, we have started joint assessments.
After passing the Philippines, the storm is expected to continue east and make landfall in the central Viet Nam in the next 48 hours. We and our partners are already in touch with authorities there to offer support as needed. Heavy rain is expected in Cambodia and northern Thailand.
