The official website of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services (Pagasa) has been down for several hours, drawing the ire of Filipinos monitoring typhoon “Ruby.”
The website appeared to have been down since 11 am Thursday. As of 2:00 am Friday, the website has yet to be accessed.
"This site is currently having some technical problem and we are doing everything to restore it as soon as possible. Please bear with us,” a message on the site said.
Pagasa however offered an alternate site, also providing its official Facebook and Twitter accounts that had updates regarding “Ruby” (International name: Hagupit).
Still, some people hit the weather bureau, including Meteorologist and Washington Post and deputy weather editor Angela Fritz.
