MANILA, Philippines — The state weather bureau has lifted Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) No. 3 as it expected the weakened Typhoon Egay (international name: Doksuri) to leave the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) within today, July 27.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), Egay may further reduce strength as it moves west of Batanes at 15 kilometers per hour (kph). The typhoon was last located 195 kilometers west of Basco, Batanes, packing maximum sustained winds of 150 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 180 kph.


“Egay is forecast to track northwestward or north-northwestward over the Luzon Strait, the sea southwest of Taiwan, and the Taiwan Strait throughout the forecast period while gradually accelerating,” Pagasa said.


Egay is anticipated to exit the PAR either this Thursday morning or afternoon and is seen to make landfall in the vicinity of China’s Fujian province by Friday morning.

However, the state weather service said other wind signals will remain hoisted over several areas while Egay is still within PAR.

Pagasa said it will keep the following areas under TCWS No. 2:

  • Batanes
  • Cagayan including Babuyan Islands
  • Apayao
  • Kalinga
  • Abra
  • Ilocos Norte
  • The northern and central portion of Ilocos Sur (Magsingal, San Esteban, Banayoyo, Burgos, City of Candon, Santiago, San Vicente, Santa Catalina, Lidlidda, Nagbukel, Sinait, San Ildefonso, Galimuyod, City of Vigan, San Emilio, Cabugao, Caoayan, San Juan, Santa, Bantay, Santo Domingo, Santa Maria, Narvacan)

And the following areas under TCWS No. 1:

  • Isabela
  • Quirino
  • Nueva Vizcaya
  • Mountain Province
  • Ifugao
  • Benguet
  • The rest of Ilocos Sur
  • La Union
  • Pangasinan
  • Aurora
  • Nueva Ecija
  • Tarlac
  • The northern portion of Zambales (Botolan, Iba, Candelaria, Cabangan, Palauig, Santa Cruz, Masinloc)

Due to Egay’s enhancement of the southwest monsoon, locally called habagat, Pagasa raised a gale warning over the following coasts:

  • The northern seaboard of Northern Luzon (Batanes, Cagayan including Babuyan Islands, and northern coast of Ilocos Norte)
  • The western and eastern seaboard of Northern Luzon and the eastern seaboard of Central Luzon (Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan, Isabela, Aurora, and the western coast of Ilocos Norte)
  • The western seaboard of Central and Southern Luzon (Zambales, Bataan, Occidental Mindoro, Palawan including Kalayaan, Calamian, Cuyo. and Cagayancillo Islands)
  • The Southern and Eastern seaboards of Southern Luzon (Metro Manila, Cavite, Batangas, Marinduque, Romblon, Masbate including Ticao and Burias Islands, Quezon including Polillo Islands, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Catanduanes, Albay, and Sorsogon)
  • The eastern and western seaboards of Visayas (Northern Samar, Negros Occidental, Guimaras, Iloilo, Capiz, Aklan, and Antique)
