MANILA, Philippines — ‘Carina’ has weakened from a tropical depression to a low pressure area (LPA), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in its latest update on Tuesday.
Pagasa said in a tweet on Tuesday night that Carina, located 170 km northwest of Basco, Batanes, just below Taiwan, dispersed at around 8:00 p.m.
Despite the development, state meteorologists warned seafarers and fisherfolk to watch out for high waves as seas would still in a moderate to rough condition for the next 24 hours.
Earlier, Pagasa lifted all storm warning signals in the country as Carina moved away from the Philippine area of responsibility.
