A low pressure area southeast of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan has developed into a tropical depression named “Tino.”
As of 11 a.m. Friday, Palawan was placed under tropical cyclone warning signal (TCWS) no. 1 by the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAG-ASA). Sea travel is risky over areas under TCWS #1 due to moderate to rough seas.
“Tino” was last spotted at 245 kms east southeast of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.
With maximum sustained winds of 55 kph and gustiness reaching 80 kph, Tino is expected to bring moderate to heavy rains within its 200-km diameter.
As it moves 28 kph in a west-northwest direction, “Tino” is expected to make a landfall Friday night in Southern Palawan.
Residents in MIMAROPA, Bicol region, Eastern Visayas, Caraga and Panay Island Luzon are advised to be alert against possible flash floods and landslides.
#TinoPH is expected to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility by tomorrow (Saturday) morning.
