Project NOAH executive director Mahar Lagmay also identified the areas where storm surges will be greatest. Storm surges as high as four meters—the height of a one-storey house—may be expected in Carigara and Babatngon in Northern Leyte; Santa Rita and Basey in Eastern Samar; and Tacloban City.

“Ang lebel ng tubig dagat ay tataas nang apat na metro o katumbas ng isang palapag ng bahay. Noong Yolanda, merong 7 meters pero ang highest expected ngayon ay 4 meters. Yolanda had higher storm surge levels than Ruby,” Lagmay said.

Lagmay also explained that Project NOAH’s detailed terrain maps and sensors will enable authorities to expand this list and give due warning of floods and storm surges in advance of Ruby’s arrival.

Typhoon Ruby entered Philippine Area of Responsibility 3 a.m. Thursday.

It is expected to make land fall over Eastern Samar Saturday morning and head to Western Samar, Masbate, and Romblon in Mindoro. Ruby is forecast to exit the PAR on Tuesday, PAGASA
