MANILA, Philippines — Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) No. 1 has been raised over four areas in Mindanao as a low pressure area east of Davao City developed into Tropical Depression Crising early Thursday. 

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) raised TCWS No. 1 over the following provinces / areas:

  • Surigao del Sur 
  • Davao Oriental
  • Davao de Oro
  • eastern portion of Agusan del Sur (Prosperidad, San Francisco, Rosario, Bunawan, Trento, Santa Josefa, Veruela)

Crising was last spotted 420 kilometers east of Davao City, packing maximum sustained winds of 45 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gusts of up to 55 kph.


Between Thursday and Friday morning, moderate to heavy rains are expected over these areas, Pagasa said.

Crising is expected to move westward or west northwestward and is likely to make landfall over Surigao del Sur or Davao Oriental between Thursday night and early Friday. 

Crising is forecast to weaken into a low pressure area after it emerges over the Sulu Sea early Saturday before leaving the Philippine area of responsibility.
