 Typhoon Forecasts and Weather Advisories for the Philippines

The massive flooding caused by Typhoon Ondoy has affected millions of people across the Philippines and has made the country extremely vulnerable to follow-on typhoons. So when we hear about a new typhoon approaching the Philippines, we want to know

  • What is the path of the typhoon?
  • When will it hit?
  • How powerful is it?

The best source of information on Philippine typhoons is the PAGASA (Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical & Astronomical Services Administration) website (http://www.pagasa.dost.gov.ph/). Here is some important information provided by PAGASA:



Typhoon Forecasts

When a typhoon is approaching the Philippines, you can get a graphic showing the path of the typhoon and its forecasted location 24, 48, and 72 hours from now.

On the PAGASA home page (http://www.pagasa.dost.gov.ph/), see the Tropical Cyclone Update section. If there is currently a typhoon in the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), there will be a link to graphics and information on the historical and projected path of the typhoon, strength (wind speed), movement, and current location.

Flood Advisories

This section of the website provides flood bulletins and advisories, hydrological forecasts, and dam status (reservoir water level, gate opening, outflow, etc.).

On the left-hand side of PAGASA home page (http://www.pagasa.dost.gov.ph/), click the FLOOD FORECAST link, and then click on Flood Bulletins/Advisories in the pop-up window. This will give you Flood Bulletins and General Flood Advisories by region.

Real-Time Weather

The Weather page provides a 24-hour general weather forecast for the Philippines as well as forecasts for selected Philippine cities and municipalities.

On the left-hand side of PAGASA home page (http://www.pagasa.dost.gov.ph/), click the REAL-TIME WEATHER link. This will open the Weather page, where you can click on Daily Weather for the general public weather forecast, or click on Philippine Cities to see the forecast for selected cities.

 Ask RemitHome: Email Notifications

Question: What kind of email notifications do I receive when I use RemitHome? Do you notify me when I send money or make changes to my account?

Answer: RemitHome sends out email notifications whenever you send money, and you will also be notified whenever a change is made to your RemitHome membership account.

Send Money Notifications – You will receive an email when you schedule a transaction and when your remittance is processed.

  • Transaction Scheduled – When you schedule a Send Money transaction, you will receive an email confirming the transaction information, including transfer date, recipient nickname, send amount, and transaction fee. If your recipient will be receiving Philippine Pesos, the email will also include an estimate of the amount of Philippine Pesos your recipient will receive, based on the current RemitHome exchange rate.
  • Remittance Processed – Shortly after your transaction is processed (12 Noon, Pacific Time), you will receive an email confirming that your transaction has been processed. For Philippine Peso transactions, the email will show the actual amount of Philippine Pesos your recipient will receive.
  • Delivery – No email is sent to confirm delivery. To check the status of your transaction, log into your RemitHome account. For a description of the transaction statuses,
    click here.

Notifications of Changes to Your remithome Account – You will receive an email notification whenever the following changes to your RemitHome membership account occur:

  • Bank Account or Credit Card Linked
  • Recipient Added
  • Recipient Bank Account Activated
  • Email Address Changed
  • Password Changed
  • Other Contact Information Changed

All email notifications will be sent to the email address you use to login and access your RemitHome account. So it is very important that your login email address is one that you check regularly.

If you have any questions about email notifications, please contact RemitHome Customer Service at 1-800-919-0787, Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM, Pacific Time (California), or email us at customerservice@remithome.com.
