‘Auring’ leaves PH
MANILA, Philippines—Storm signals were lifted as Tropical Storm “Auring” (international name Sonamu) made its exit out of the Philippine territory Friday afternoon, the state weather bureau said.
Auring was last spotted 460 kilometers southwest of Puerto Princesa City, packing maximum sustained winds of 75 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 90 kph, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration.
Heavy to intense rains were still seen within the 200 kilometers diameter of Auring, and fishing boats and other small seacraft were still advised not to venture out into the seaboards of Northern and Central Luzon and the western seaboards of Southern Luzon due to the northeast monsoon.
Meanwhile, a cluster of clouds that could possibly form into a low pressure area was spotted some 2,000 kilometers east of Mindanao, according to Pagasa.
It added that it was still outside the Philippine territory and was still being observed.
