GFMS Shows RainFall and Flooding From Super Typhoon Yutu
The images above show flood inundation and rainfall accumulations over a 3-day period in the Po River valley in Italy today and forecast flood conditions today in the Philippines. The hazardous weather conditions in the Philippines are associated with Typhoon Yutu. Despite weakening into a tropical storm as it crossed the Philippines, Yutu is expected to restrengthen into a typhoon over the South China Sea. Many areas previously impacted by Typhoon Mangkhut in mid-September were dealt another round of heavy rain and damaging winds from Yutu which made landfall in Isabela province around 4 a.m. local time. In advance of the storm's arrival, more than 10,000 people were evacuated from high risk areas.
