Tropical Storm Basyang, the 2nd cyclone this year, crossed Cebu last night. We felt the strong winds and heavy rains at the station for approximately 4 hours, then it continued to traverse towards Western Visayas. The disturbance tracked a westward direction, moving fast at a rate of 39kph. It was short and simple, unlike Agaton, which lingered for so many days from birth to decay and caused flashfloods and landslides in several areas in Mindanao. For February and March, we have a slim chance for development of cyclone and there will less thunderstorms, so I better keep myself busy with some post analysis or case study.
