Typhoon Labuyo moves, fishermen warned vs big waves
In Bohol, Philippines, although not directly affected by typhoon “Labuyo,” residents here have also felt moderate wind and rough seas associated with the typhoon.
Because the waves tend to be much bigger, fishermen in Tagbilaran City, Bohol, have decided not to go fishing for today.
This small boat, which was left by the owner near the cliff, was almost wrecked by big waves. Other fishermen just left their small boats near the cliff.
But the rough seas didn't dampen the spirit of this young boy to go fishing using a hook.
According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), typhoon “Labuyo” has grown stronger as it continues to threaten Luzon.
