Convoy of Hope’s Disaster Services team is closely monitoring Super Typhoon Hagupit, a potentially catastrophic tropical cyclone in the western Pacific Ocean, which forecasters are predicting to make landfall in the Philippines.
“Our in-country staff, as well as our team in the Convoy of Hope Operations Center in Springfield, Mo., are closely watching this storm as it nears the Philippines,” says Chris Dudley, disaster services response director. “If a response is warranted, we’ll act quickly and efficiently.”
Forecasters are warning of the possibly of life-threatening winds, storm surge and flash floods caused by Typhoon Hagupit. As the Disaster Services team monitors the situation, updates will be posted here on the Hope Supply.
