All storm signals were lifted as Severe Tropical Storm “Rosita” (international name “Yutu”) moved away from the country, the weather bureau said Wednesday.

The storm further weakened as it remained almost stationary over the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in its 5 a.m. bulletin.
