Philippine authorities prompted to close airport and suspends classes due to powerful winds and heavy rains. Tisoy made landfall on the southeastern part of Luzon Monday night bringing a sustained winds almost 215 kms. per hour, according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center.

Authorities also suspend marine traffic in affected areas, leaving thousand of people stranded in ports.

However, we might wonder how Tisoy look like as he lashes out all his power on the ground. The Philippine made Diwata-2 microsatellite has captured an image of Tisoy from above as it batter the Bicol region.

"Diwata-2 maintains a watchful eye as the country braces for Typhoon Tisoy (Kammuri). The satellite’s Wide Field Camera (WFC) captured an image of the storm as it approached Bicol region at 12:58:47 PHT on December 2, 2019," the microsat blog posted.

"As an Earth-observing microsatellite, Diwata-2 is equipped with cameras such as the WFC which can be used to capture images of cloud patterns and typhoons. It will continue to monitor Tisoy as it moves across Luzon and leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). Forecast from PAGASA shows that Typhoon Tisoy will be out of PAR around morning of Thursday, December 5," the post said.
