Tisoy exits Philippine territory, scattered rains still expected – Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — Tropical Storm Tisoy has exited the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) Thursday morning and weakened further into a tropical depression, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) reported.
The state weather bureau’s 11 a.m. bulletin stated that Tisoy exited PAR at 8 a.m. and was located 705 kilometers west northwest of Coron, Palawan at 10 a.m.
Pagasa said Tisoy has maximum sustained winds of 55 kilometers per hour (km/h) near the center and gustiness of up to 70 km/h.
Despite Tisoy’s exit, heavy rains may still be experienced over most of Northern Luzon, Aurora, and northern Quezon due to the combined effects of the surge of northeast monsoon and the tail-end of a cold front.
Pagasa said the rainfall may lead to flooding and landslides in highly susceptible areas.
Pagasa also warned of rough seas over the seaboards of Northern and Central Luzon, and the eastern and western seaboards of Southern Luzon.
