Philippines on tropical storm alert
Tuesday, September 26, 2006 (Manila):

A tropical storm heading for the eastern Philippines prompted authorities to raise a weather alert on Tuesday.

Tropical Storm Xangsane will bring heavy rains, maximum winds of 65 kilometers (40 miles) per hour and gusts of up to 85 kph (53 mph) before making landfall on Thursday.

The islands of Samar, Dinagat, Leyte, Biliran and Siargao were placed on storm alert. Coastal waters will be rough and extremely dangerous, and residents were advised to seek higher ground because of big waves.

Those living in low-lying areas and near mountain slopes were alerted to the possibility of flash floods and landslides.

The storm will veer westward before making landfall over Aurora province on Thursday. It will then cut across central Luzon and exit over the South China Sea. (AP)
