MANILA, Philippines — Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) No. 4 was raised on Tuesday morning over the northeastern portion of mainland Cagayan due to Super Typhoon Egay (international name: Doksuri).

In its latest cyclone bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) explained that parts of Cagayan, being under TCWS No. 4, may experience typhoon-force winds ranging from 118 kilometers per hour (kph) to 184 kph within 12 hours.
