As for the gale warning, Pagasa said it was raised over the seaboards of localities where Signals No. 2 and 1 are in effect because rough to high seas with waves ranging from 2.5 to 7.5 meters in height may be experienced in these areas.

“Mariners are advised to remain in port or take shelter in port until winds and waves subside,” Pagasa said.
