MANILA, Philippines – More areas have been placed under tropical cyclone wind signal (TCWS) no. 1 as Tropical Depression Jenny moves west-northwestward away from Northern Luzon, according to state weather service PAGASA.

As of 7:00 AM on Wednesday (August 28), the center of TD Jenny was observed at 215 km West Northwest of Dagupan City, Pangasinan, packed with maximum sustained winds of 55 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 70 kph.

TWCS No. 1 is now raised over:

  • Cagayan
  • Apayao
  • Abra
  • Benguet
  • Ilocos Norte
  • Ilocos Sur
  • La Union
  • Pangasinan
  • Northern portion of Zambales
  • Tarlac

Residents in the said areas will experience gusty conditions wherein winds of 30kph to 60kph may be expected in at least 36 hours or intermittent rains may be expected within 36 hours.

Meanwhile, occasional gusts may also occur in Visayas and in other areas of Luzon due to the Southwest Monsoon or habagat.

PAGASA advises fisherfolks and owners of sea vessels that sea travel remains risky over the seaboards of Northern and Central Luzon and the eastern and western seaboards of Southern Luzon, including the seaboards of areas still under TCWS No. 1 due to potentially rough sea conditions.

Throughout the day, PAGASA said light to moderate with intermittent heavy rains due to habagat will be experienced over:

  • Western Visayas
  • Zamboanga Peninsula
  • Bangsamoro
  • Mindoro Provinces
  • and Palawan (including Calamian and Cuyo Islands)

Residents of these areas are advised to take precautionary measures for potential flashfloods and landslides, monitor updates from PAGASA and coordinate with local disaster risk reduction and management offices in case of emergency.

Tropical Depression ‘Jenny’ is forecast to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) this afternoon or evening.

Ilang bayan sa Cordillera region at Cagayan, binaha dahil sa epekto ni ‘Maring’

Robie de Guzman   •   October 12, 2021


Ilang bahagi ng Northern Luzon ang hindi ngayon madaanan dahil sa pananalasa ng bagyong Maring.

Sa Cordillera Administrative Region, sarado ang ilang pangunahing kalsada dahil sa mga insidente ng rock slide at landslide.

Kabilang sa mga isinarang kalsada ang Kennon Road, Baguio-Bontoc Road, Asin-Nangalisan-San Pascual Road, Baguio-Bontoc Road, Benguet-Nueva Vizcaya Road, at Baguio Bauang Road.

Nagpapatuloy na ang clearing operations sa mga nasabing kalsada.

Samantala, lubog naman sa baha ang ilang pangunahing tourist sites sa Baguio City, kabilang na ang Burnham Park.

Binaha rin ang strawberry fields sa La Trinidad, Benguet dahil pa rin sa epekto ni Maring.

Sa bahagi naman ng Cagayan, napinsala ng baha ang mga libro, module, at computers sa Simpatuyo Elementary School sa bayan ng Sta. Teresita dahil sa mga pag-ulan.

Maging ang mga kagamitan sa ilang silid aralan sa Casilagan Primary School sa Buguey, hindi rin nakaligtas.

Tinangay naman ng malakas na hangin ang bubong ng ilang paaralan sa isla ng Calayan.

Sa pinakahuling ulat ng state weather bureau na PAGASA, palabas na ng Philippine area of responsibility ang bagyong Maring ngunit makararanas pa rin ng pag-ulan ang ilang bahagi ng bansa dahil sa epekto ng habagat na pinalalakas ng bagyo.
