Typhoon Signal Guidance

Philippine Tropical Cyclone Attendee Guidance

Tropical cyclones normally occur in the Philippines during the months of June to November. Tropical cyclone advisory bulletins and/or warnings are issued by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) whenever a tropical cyclone is within the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). 

Tropical cyclone bulletins are issued by PAGASA every three hours for all tropical cyclones within this area that are currently affecting the country, six hours when cyclones are anticipated to make landfall within the Philippines, or twelve hours when cyclones are not affecting land. 

PSWS LEAD TIME* (kph) WINDS (KPH) IMPACTS OF THE WIND

#3 18 121 - 170 Moderate to heavy damage
#4 12 171 - 220 Heavy to very heavy damage

Latest Public Storm signal warnings are broadcast on radio, television and posted on PAGASA website (http://bagong.pagasa.dost.gov.ph/weather/weather-advisory) and Facebook page. 

Extreme weather may cause immediate risk, therefor we recognize a duty of care to coordinate the appropriate level of response to initate pre-planned actions and reduce potential impact.    

Regular communications will be issued to facilitate the necessary actions in the days prior and during any occurrence via our fair website, social media, onsite briefings and venue announcements.
