PAGASA website inaccessible during Super Typhoon Yolanda

The official web portal of PAGASA went inaccessible Thursday as people search and browse the internet for updates on Super Typhoon Yolanda.

Weather bulletins, which the state weather bureau should provide, are not accessible due to possible downtime caused by overcapacity that occured many times throughout the day.

However, PAGASA continues to provide details of the very strong weather disturbance via social media. Thanks to Facebook and Twitter, updates can be read at twitter.com/dost_pagasa and www.facebook.com/PAGASA.DOST.GOV.PH.

PAGASA should upgrade its server to be able to provide the public information at a time when it is badly needed.
