    Tropical Storm Agaton: ‘Most Welcome Storm’

    Tropical disturbance Agaton has an international name of Omais. This is the first typhoon to visit the Philippine area of responsibility. But according to Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), this typhoon will not make any significant impact at any part of the country. Typhoon Agaton was spotted 1,000 kilometers east of Catarman, Northern Samar with maximum sustained winds of 55 kilometers per hour and it is moving northwest at 26 kilometers per hour. PAGASA has not raised any public storm signal at any region in the country because it is likely to bring heavy rains but there are chances of isolated rainshowers and thunderstorm.  This typhoon caused just a minimal damage to infrastructure and agriculture sectors and it has left no victims. Typhoon Agaton was considered to be the “most welcome” storm as the country had been badly hit by drought due to  El Niño.  Farmers in the different part of the country have been raising their hopes that the typhoon Agaton will dump enough rain water in their farmlands.

    Hopes were dampened, however, as the high pressure area that extended over Northern Luzon hindered it from moving near the country.
