Just days after experiencing Severe Tropical Storm Dodong (international name: Talim), residents of northern Luzon are now being battered by another tropical cyclone — Typhoon Egay (international name: Doksuri).

“Egay” is the second super typhoon to have entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) in 2023, next to “Betty.” It is also the second tropical cyclone for the month of July.

“Egay” has been causing severe damage in the north, toppling trees, power poles, and triggering flashfloods and landslides.

It has also been enhancing the effects of the southwest monsoon, locally known as “habagat.” This is affecting different parts of the country, including those that are not in “Egay’s” range.

Reports said the typhoon has already left one individual dead, thousands without electricity, and numerous families in evacuation centers as it batters northern Luzon.

It is forecast to leave PAR by Thursday morning.
