MANILA, Philippines—The second cyclone in the Philippine territory for the year, tropical depression “Bising” has maintained its strength as it moved slower north northwestward, the state weather bureau said Saturday.

Signal No. 1 or winds of 45 to 60 kilometers per hour remained in Camarines Sur, Catanduanes, Albay and Sorsogon, Northern, Western and Eastern Samar, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.

As of 4 a.m., the center of the tropical depression 170 kilometers northeast of Borongan, Eastern Samar.

It carried maximum sustained winds of 45 kph near the center, and was moving north northwest at 13 kph.

It will bring moderate to heavy rains within its 300 kilometers.

Those living in low lying and mountainous areas under Signal No. 1 were alerted against possible flashfloods and landslides.

Fishing boats and other small seacrafts are advised not to venture out into the seaboards of Northern and Central Luzon and over the eastern seaboard of Southern Luzon and Visayas due to “Bising” and the northeast monsoon, Pagasa said.

Bising is expected to be at 110 km northeast of Virac, Catanduanes by Sunday morning and at 360 km east of Aparri, Cagayan by Monday morning. By Tuesday morning, it is expected to be at 580 km northeast of Basco, Batanes.

    “The second cyclone in the Philippine territory for the year, tropical
    depression “Bising” has maintained its strength as it moved slower north
    northwestward, the state weather bureau said Saturday.”

    Para kayong tabloid na nag-oover-sensationalize ng balita. Ang “Bising” po ay hindi bagyo o cyclone. Kapag ang hangin nito ay hindi lumalampas sa 61 km/h, ito ay Tropical Depression lamang. Pag lumampas sa 61 km/h hanggang 117 km/h ang hangin, ang tawag dito ay Tropical Storm. Saka pa lang magiging bagyo o Tropical Cyclone o typhoon ito pag lummpas sa 117 km/h ang hangin nito.

    Ang ganitong weather phenomenon ay normally binibigyan ng pangalan kung ito ay naging Tropical Storm na. Ang lahat ng kaguluhang ito ay nagsimula dahil sa adelantadong PAG-ASA na nagbinyag ng pangalan dito. Punahin ninyo na walang international name ang depression na ito.
