Dear 36th ACRS 2015 Participants,
First of all, the organizers wish to thank all of you for your support and contribution to ACRS 2015.
We are very excited that ACRS 2015 is just two days away. But we are also concerned that some of you might be concerned about the approaching Typhoon KOPPU (Local name: LANDO).
According to the latest bulletin from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), there is a public storm signal #1 for Metro Manila with 30-60km/h winds in 36 hours. Despite the relatively weak winds, Metro Manila will experience moderate to heavy rains especially tomorrow Sunday (Oct. 18) and expected to last till Monday (Oct. 19) since the typhoon is forecasted to remain stationary in Central-Northern Luzon area. It is expected that rains and bit of gusts will last till Tuesday morning when the typhoon is expected to exit the Luzon land mass and head northwest.
In this regard, we wish to advice all our participants to keep abreast of the typhoon conditions, and to bring rain coats. For our participants who will travel to Metro Manila by air, may we advice you to contact or get the latest information from your respective airlines for any changes or cancellation of your flights, and to kindly inform us accordingly.
Despite the prevailing weather conditions in the Philippines, the organizers would like to inform all participants that the conference will push through as scheduled.
We wish for your safe arrival in Metro Manila, and we look forward to meeting you at the conference.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org.
