MANILA (UPDATE)—Tropical cyclone wind signals have been raised over the Mimaropa region, as tropical depression Lannie is forecast to make another landfall.
In its 5 a.m. weather bulletin, PAGASA said Lannie was last located 90 kilometers northwest of Cuyo town in Palawan, packing maximum sustained winds of 45 kph near the center with 55 kph gusts while moving northwestward at 25 kph.
According to PAGASA, the weather disturbance has strong winds extending from its center up to 130 kph.
PAGASA said Lannie is expected to make another landfall in the vicinity of northern mainland Palawan or Calamian Islands Tuesday morning before emerging over the West Philippine Sea.
Tropical cyclone wind signal (TCWS) No. 1, where strong winds are expected within 36 hours, is still raised over the following areas:
- southwestern portion of Romblon (Odiongan, Looc, Alcantara, Ferrol, Santa Fe, San Jose)
- southern portion of Oriental Mindoro (Roxas, Mansalay, Bulalacao)
- southern portion of Occidental Mindoro (Calintaan, Rizal, San Jose, Magsaysay)
- northern portion of Palawan (El Nido, Taytay, Dumaran, Araceli) including Calamian and Cuyo Islands.
- western portion of Aklan (Madalag, Malinao, Ibajay, Nabas, Malay, Buruanga)
TCWS in other areas, meanwhile, have been lifted.
PAGASA said moderate to heavy rains will fall over Palawan, including Calamian and Cuyo Islands. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains are also possible over Metro Manila, Western Visayas, Bicol region, Calabarzon, Central Luzon and the rest of Mimaropa.
PAGASA also warned that scattered flooding, including flash floods, and rain-induced landslides can occur in affected areas.
The weather agency likewise warned of moderate to rough seas over the coastal waters, especially in areas where TCWS is raised.
"Mariners are advised to take precautionary measures when venturing out to sea and, if possible, avoid navigating in these conditions," it said.
Lannie is also projected to remain a tropical depression. PAGASA said it will leave the Philippine area of responsibility on Wednesday afternoon or evening.
