Landfall

The state weather bureau said Paeng is projected to make landfall in Catanduanes by early morning Saturday and another landfall either in Quezon or Aurora on Sunday, October 30.

“On the forecast track, this tropical cyclone may make landfall over Catanduanes by tomorrow early morning. Afterwards, it will traverse the northern portion of Camarines Sur, then the eastern portion of Camarines Norte. By Sunday morning, the center of Paeng may make another landfall over the east coast of Quezon (including Polillo Islands) or Aurora,” Pagasa said.

Pagasa also said Paeng may no longer strengthen into a typhoon although it is still forecast to intensify into a severe tropical storm tomorrow, October 29.

“Due to a landfall scenario over Bicol Region, it is less likely to reach typhoon category and there is an increasing likelihood that Paeng may remain a severe tropical storm,” it noted.
