All storm signals lifted as ‘Maring’ moves away from PAR
All tropical cyclone signals were lifted early Wednesday as Tropical Storm Maring (international name: Doksuri) crossed the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea).
As of 4a.m., Maring was located 270 kilometers west of Iba, Zambales, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.
It blew winds of 75 kilometers per hour (kph) and gusts of 90 kph, moving west northwest at 15 kph.
The storm is expected to exit the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) on Wednesday evening or early Thursday.
Mimaropa (Oriental and Occidental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Palawan), Zambales, Bataan and Batangas will have light to moderate with occasionally heavy rains, weather forecaster Samuel Duran said in a press briefing.
Sea travel remained dangerous over the western seaboard of Central and Southern Luzon.
Typhoon Lannie, meanwhile, was located 610 kilometers northeast of Basco, Batanes and posed no threat to the country.
It is expected to leave the PAR on Wednesday and night or early Thursday. /idl
