Marikina City Prepares for Typhoon Megi/Juan

Typhoon Megi (local code name:Juan) is so far the strongest storm to hit the Philippines year.  It is also currently being recorded as the 4th strongest typhoon to hit the planet.

Signal No. 4 has been hoisted in the provinces of Cagayan and Isabela, with maximum winds of up to 225 kilometers per hour (140 mph) and gustiness of as much as 260 kilometers per hour.

As early as now, city government is planning to move their command center to higher ground.  They are also preparing additional boats and improvised floaters for rescue operations if the need arises.
