TYPHOON Glenda (Rammasun) has made landfall over Sorsogon, but hours before it hit land Tuesday afternoon, several areas under its path, including Eastern Visayas, already felt its wrath.

Here are some photos posted on Facebook by some residents in areas affected by Glenda, particularly in Samar and Leyte provinces:

As of 4 p.m. Tuesday, Typhoon Glenda was located at 60 kilometers east of Legazpi City in Albay, packing maximum winds of 130 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gusts of up to 160 kph.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Glenda will cross Bicol Region toward Southern Luzon and will pass Metro Manila before noon Wednesday.

On Wednesday afternoon, Glenda will be in the vicinity of Bataan and will move toward the West Philippine West before it exits the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) by Thursday.

Glenda is the seventh tropical cyclone to enter PAR this year. (Sunnex)
