I watched the local news with some PAGASA forecasters on air and I noticed some of the known weather specialists of the agency aren't there...I should know because they usually appear during news interviews but now they're not present...
I suspect some of the more skilled weathermen are off to a Yuletide vacation or something... They said Jangmi's "weakening" should be expected because it's crossing the islands...well now that clearly isn't the case, with all due respect.
