BAGUIO CITY -- Typhoon “Gorio” has started early Sunday to bring continuous heavy rains to this mountain resort and Benguet Province making travel within the area dangerous due to the slippery pavements and possible landslides.

The warning was made as all roads leading to this city remain open to all types of vehicle.

Meanwhile, City Mayor Mauricio Domogan and the rest of newly elected officials are set to take the oath of office Sunday.

As of this posting, no word yet of its cancellation due to the stormy weather.

Efren Dalipog, local weather forecaster of the Philippines Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), said that as of early evening of Saturday, all local government units were alerted that these areas were already under typhoon signal number one.

City Vice Mayor Daniel Farinas said the local disaster coordinating councils were already put on alert to respond to any eventuality due to the first typhoon this year to directly affect these localities within the southwestern parts of the Cordillera mountain ranges.
