MANILA, Philippines — Super Typhoon Goring (international name: Saola) will exit the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) on Wednesday night at the earliest, state meteorologists said.

“Goring is forecast to follow a mainly west-northwestward path across the Luzon Strait from today until it exits the PAR tonight or tomorrow morning,” the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in its Wednesday afternoon bulletin.

Pagasa said the center of Goring was spotted some 185 kilometers west of Itbayat, Batanes, packing maximum sustained winds of 195 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center with gustiness of up to 240 kph.

Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 1 is still up over Batanes, Babuyan Islands, Ilocos Norte, northern portion of Apayao (Luna, Santa Marcela, Calanasan), and the northwestern portion of Cagayan (Pamplona, Claveria, Ballesteros, Abulug, Sanchez-Mira, Santa Praxedes).

Intermittent rains and 39 – 61 kph winds are expected in these areas in the next 36 hours.
