Merry Christmas - is it safe to bike with the arrival of typhoon Nina?

Wheels of Happiness

Merry Christmas every one.

This joyful greeting despite Catanduanes being placed under signal No. 3?  Typhoon Nina is a strong typhoon with maximum wind of 185 kph.    It is expected to produce storm surges of up to 2.5 meters along coastal areas.    Rizal and NCR is under signal No 1.  I have bad feeling, it may pay us a visit tomorrow.  So Kapadyaks be ready.

As I biked only 20 km today (10 km out and 10 km back), a kapadyak said that the typhoon is delayed because it has weakened.  But a PAG ASA NDC briefing at about 10 am said that the typhoon could be super typhoon with Signal No 4 raised at Catanduanes.

So ingat po
