MANILA — Strong waves originating from San Miguel Bay whipped the fish port in Barangay Sabang in Calabanga town, Camarines Sur on Saturday afternoon, as parts of Central Luzon braced for the onslaught of Typhoon Rolly.
The waves, estimated to be as high as 1 meter, were caught on video by Bayan Patroller Marlon Delfino hitting the fish port around 4 p.m.
Catanduanes and some areas in Camarines Sur were placed under Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 4 Saturday night, as Rolly closed in on Philippine land mass, state weather bureau PAGASA said.
