/ 06:10 PM August 22, 2017

All storm signals have been lowered as Severe Tropical Storm “Isang” (Hato) left the Philippine area of responsibility on Tuesday afternoon.


But the storm intensified further before its exit, now with maximum sustained winds of 110 kilometers per hour and gusts of up to 137 kph, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.

Isang was last spotted 395 kilometers west of Basco, Batanes, moving at 25 kph west northwest.


Moderate to occasionally heavy rains will be experienced within the 400 km diameter of the Severe Tropical Storm.

Despite its exit, the weather system will continue to enhance the southwest monsoon that will bring light up to heavy rains over Luzon and Western Visayas particularly the provinces of Pangasinan, Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas and Mindoro, Pagasa said.

The weather bureau still warned of risky sea travel over the western seaboard of Northern Luzon. Frances Mangosing
