The UAE Embassy in Manila has called upon its citizens in Philippines to take precautions regarding Hurricane Karding.

The embassy has advised citizens to abide by the instructions issued by local authorities.

Super Typhoon Karding, is the local name for Typhoon Noru.

“In case of [an] emergency [situation], please contact the embassy at the following contact number: +971 2 80024,” the embassy tweeted.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said the province of Quezon is seen to be the hardest-hit area by Super Typhoon Karding as damage assessment in affected areas continues, the Philippines News Agency has said.

Millions of people in the Philippines are left without electricity after Typhoon Noru, brought strong winds and rain that cut power lines, flooded homes and submerged farms. Markets, government offices and schools are shut for September 26.

Noru, which rapidly intensified from a tropical storm into a super typhoon over the weekend, also left homes and rice fields flooded. Three-fourths of the nation’s standing rice crops may be affected by the typhoon ahead of harvest, the Agriculture Department earlier said, posing further food supply and inflation risks to the nation that has already experienced shortages.

The Philippines is among the most vulnerable nations in the world to floods and storms, according to Fitch Ratings’ climate change physical risk exposure heatmap rankings.
