More provinces were added to the list of areas under Storm Signal no. 2 including Cagayan including Calayan, Babuyan and Batanes Group of Islands, Isabela, Kalinga, Apayao, Mountain Province, Abra and Ilocos Norte.

Provinces under Signal no. 1 are Aurora, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Ifugao, Benguet, Ilocos Sur and La Union.

Gener Quitlong, Pagasa weather forecaster, said “Mario” will not directly affect Metro Manila but that rains would still be felt due to the storm’s combined effect with the southwest monsoon.

‎By Sunday morning, “Mario” is expected to be 680 km north of Itbayat, Batanes as it exits the Philippines.
