MANILA, Philippines — Tropical Depression Vicky has made landfall in the municipality of Baganga in Davao Oriental on Friday afternoon, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) reported.
In an interview over dzBB, Pagasa weather forecaster Jun Galang said Vicky made landfall at around 2 p.m.

(We are expecting that after its landfall, Vicky may cross Mindanao and will reemerge in Bohol Sea tomorrow morning.)
“Maari din po itong lumapit dito sa may Siquijor at dadaan sa may southern portion ng Negros Island at maari pong bukas ng hapon narito na siya sa may Sulu sea,” he added.
(It may also pass close Siquijor and also the southern portion of Negros Island, likewise in Sulu sea tomorrow afternoon.)
