TD Lannie update: Signal No. 1 in 6 areas, rainy Tuesday in parts of Luzon, Visayas
MANILA, Philippines — Six areas are under Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) No.1 on Tuesday as Tropical Depression Lannie moved towards Calamian Islands in Palawan, the state weather bureau said.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), in its 5 a.m. bulletin, said that the center of TD Lannie was estimated to be 90 kilometers northwest of Cuyo, Palawan.
Pagasa added that Lannie was packing maximum sustained winds of 45 kilometers per hour (kph) and gustiness of up to 55 kph while moving west at 25 kph.
The six areas under TCWS No. 1 are:
- Southwestern part of Romblon (Odiongan, Looc, Alcantara, Ferrol, Santa Fe, San Jose)
- Southern part of Oriental Mindoro (Roxas, Mansalay, Bulalacao)
- Southern part of Occidental Mindoro (Calintaan, Rizal, San Jose, Magsaysay)
- Northern part of Palawan (El Nido, Taytay, Dumaran, Araceli) including Calamian and Cuyo Islands.
- Western part of Aklan (Madalag, Malinao, Ibajay, Nabas, Malay, Buruanga)
TD Lannie may bring moderate to heavy rains over Palawan including Calamian and Cuyo Islands, while light to moderate and at times heavy rains are also possible in Metro Manila, Western Visayas, Bicol region, Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) Central Luzon, and the rest of Mimaropa (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Palawan), according to Pagasa.
“Under these conditions, isolated to scattered flooding (including flash floods) and rain-induced landslides are likely especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards as identified in hazard maps,” Pagasa said.
Pagasa said TD Lannie will also bring moderate to rough seas in areas where TCWS #1 is in effect as well as over the seaboards of Northern Luzon.
“These conditions are risky for those using small seacraft. Mariners are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea and, if possible, avoid navigating in these conditions,” Pagasa warned.
