They will probably have a different name for the storm there. They get more than any other country so are probably generally able to handle the effects, but diving will be affected...

But now a full Cat-5 expected to hit hard. Going to do more than cancel diving...

Will be there at the end of the month. I'll give a report.
I think it's called Ruby locally. She is on track & strength to do major damage. Hoping for the best, and that where you're going is still there.

I just don't log dives
Thanks. My wife is supposed to leave tomorrow for Cebu City. Supposedly they aren't supposed to take a direct hit with the typhoon moving further north. All we can do is hope and say prayers for the people in its path.

I flew into the path of a Cat-5 once thinking surely it'd veer off. I left a couple days later and started reading forecasts more closely & seriously.

That is one big storm to dodge. Hope her flight paths don't cross its, but I guess you have researched it well and have local contacts. I bet the airline would allow a free change of date tho.
