SatelliteImage_Juan_PAGASA_1.jpgLast week's announcement that Typhoon "Juan" (known internationally as "Megi") was classified as a super typhoon had the whole country clamoring for news and updates about the storm's projected movement across the northern part of the country. "Juan" is the first of a series of storms to hit the Philippines in next three months. "Siya ang pinakamalakas so far, pero for this year ang projection namin may mga malalakas na bagyo pa na darating," said Natahaniel Servando, deputy administrator of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Adminstration (PAGASA).

As of PAGASA's 5:00 PM update on Typhoon Juan, the storm was located 70 kilometers outside of Tugegarao City, and is expected to exit the country somewhere around the Ilocos Sur-La Union area. 

Take note of the official Twitter accounts of these government agencies and news organizations for quick updates on Juan as it weaves itself across northern Luzon.
