What Happened To The Dolomite In Manila Bay After Typhoon Rolly?
DOLOMITE AFTER THE DARK – As Typhoon Rolly crept closer to Luzon, some netizens were curious about what would happen to the controversial dolomite in Manila Bay.
Most netizens predicted that the storm would easily wash out the artificial sand in Manila bay as it was called the strongest storm to enter the Philippines in 2020. But what really happened to the bay following the storm?
When you look at the photos circulating online, it appears that the bay was still intact despite the storm. At one point, several areas in Metro Manila raised Signal No. 4 as to storm nears.
However, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), there was a reason why NCR wasn’t heavily affected despite raising signal No. 4. According to an article from Philippine News, weather forecaster Benny Estajera explained:
“Yung reason dyan ay nag-westward yung general movement nitong si Rolly while going from Bicol region across Quezon hanggang dito sa Batangas. So yung forecast track na pa-northwest na halos doon na dikit na dito sa Metro Manila yung sentro is medyo lumayo“
Here are some photos uploaded by GMA:
As such, the dolomite in Manila remained intact with residents even going to the bay as the sun peeked through the clouds. Bikers and joggers alike visited the bay. But local authorities requested the visitors to leave as a precaution against a possible storm surge.
