MANILA — Super Typhoon Karding (international name: Noru) has slightly weakened ahead of its possible second landfall in the vicinity of General Nakar or Dingalan in the Quezon-Aurora area, state weather forecaster PAGASA said.
Karding made its first landfall in the vicinity of Burdeos, Quezon Sunday afternoon.
However, PAGASA said the super typhoon is still packing maximum sustained winds of 185 kph near the center.
Before its 8 p.m. bulletin, the weather bureau said Karding had winds at 195 kph.
"Frictional effects during landfall and traverse of the Luzon landmass will weaken KARDING throughout the evening through tomorrow early morning, although it is highly likely that this tropical cyclone will remain a typhoon while crossing the landmass," it also said.
Karding maintained its speed, moving westward at 20 kph. It was last sighted over the coastal waters of General Nakar, Quezon, PAGASA said.
Many Luzon areas are still under wind signals.

From Sunday night through Monday early morning, PAGASA warned of heavy to intense with at times torrential rains over Metro Manila, Zambales, Bataan, Tarlac, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Bulacan, Aurora, Rizal, and the northern portion of Quezon including Polillo Islands.
Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains, meanwhile, may occur over Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino, Benguet, Ifugao, Mountain Province, Pangasinan, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, the central portion of Quezon, Occidental Mindoro and Camarines Norte.
PAGASA added that light to moderate with at times heavy rains can be expected over Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, and the rest of CALABARZON and Bicol Region.
Moreover, the weather forecaster said by Monday early morning through early afternoon, heavy to intense with at times torrential rains might hammer Zambales, Bataan, Pampanga, and Bulacan.
Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains might ravage Metro Manila, Pangasinan, Cavite, Occidental Mindoro, and the rest of Central Luzon, PAGASA said, while light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Mountain Province, Ifugao, Benguet, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Oriental Mindoro, and the rest of Calabarzon.
"Under these conditions, widespread flooding and rain-induced landslides are expected, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazard as identified in hazard maps and in localities with significant antecedent rainfall," PAGASA said.
"Due to the Southwest Monsoon, occasional to monsoon rains over Palawan, Western Visayas and Zamboanga Peninsula," it added.
PAGASA also warned that there is a "high to very high risk" of storm surge more than 3 meters in height in the low-lying and exposed coastal areas of northern Quezon, including Polillo Islands and Aurora.
"In addition, a moderate to high risk of storm surge is also possible over Camarines Norte, Pangasinan, Zambales, Bulacan, the northern portion of Metro Manila, the southern portion of La Union, and the rest of Quezon. The combined effects of storm surge and high waves breaking along the coast may cause life-threatening and damaging inundation or flooding," it said.
Here is PAGASA's forecast position for the super typhoon:
• Sep 26, 2022, 5 AM - Over the coastal waters of Masinloc, Zambales
•Sep 26, 2022, 5 PM - 360 km West of Dagupan City, Pangasinan
