MANILA, Philippines – State weather service PAGASA has raised cyclone warning signal No. 1 over Northern Isabela, Cagayan and Batanes on Tuesday (July 16) due to the effects of tropical depression Falcon.

This means winds of up to 60 kph may be expected in at least 36 hours or intermittent rains may be expected within 36 hours.

Residents in the affected areas are advised to take precautionary measures as landslides and flashfloods are possible due to scattered to widespread rains.

Meanwhile, cloudy skies and scattered rainshowers will affect Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon due to the southwest monsoon or habagat enhanced by the tropical depression.

Metro Manila residents especially in low lying areas are advised to prepare from flashfloods possible during severe thunderstorms.    

Monsoon rains, meanwhile, will be experienced in MIMAROPA, Western Visayas, Masbate, Albay, Catanduanes, Sorsogon and Northern Samar.

These areas will experience light to moderate with occasional heavy monsoon rains with possible landslides or flashfloods.

As of 4:00 a.m., TD Falcon was estimated at 690 km east of Tuguegarao City, Cagayan.

It is moving west at 30 kph with maximum sustained winds of 55 kph and gustiness of up to 65 kph.

Fisherfolks and those with small seacrafts are advised not to venture out over the seaboards of areas under tropical cyclone warning signal #1 as well as the eastern seaboards of Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

According to PAGASA, TD Falcon is less likely to make landfall but it may intensify into a tropical storm as it approaches extreme Northern Luzon tomorrow afternoon or evening.

Marje Pelayo   •   December 4, 2019

MANILA, Philippines – State weather agency PAGASA has lifted all tropical cyclone wind signals (TCWS) as severe tropical storm ‘Tisoy’ further weakens while moving towards the West Philippine Sea.

PAGASA said, however, that moderate to rough seas may still prevail over the western seaboard of Central Luzon and the southern seaboard of Southern Luzon.

Furthermore, moderate with occasional heavy rains is seen to affect the Ilocos Region, Cagayan Valley, Cordillera Administrative Region, and Aurora.

Residents in these areas are advised to take appropriate actions for possible landslides and flashfloods.

Meanwhile, sea travel is not advised especially for small sea vessels over the seaboards of Northern Luzon, eastern seaboard of Central Luzon, and the eastern and western seaboards of Southern Luzon due to rough sea conditions.
