Signal No. 1 hoisted over four areas as “Ramon” intensifies

(Eagle News)–Signal No. 1 remains hoisted over several areas as Tropical Storm “Ramon” intensified.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said Signal No. 1 remains hoisted over the southeastern portion of Cagayan (Peñablanca and Baggao), eastern portion of Isabela (Divilacan, Palanan, Dinapigue and Maconacon), Northern Aurora (Dilasag, Casiguran, and Dinalungan) and Polillo Islands, with “Ramon” estimated   at 445 km east northeast of Casiguran, Aurora, packing maximum sustained winds of up to 75 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 90 kph.

“Ramon” is moving northwards at 15 kph.

Signal No. 1 has been lifted from Catanduanes.

Today, light to moderate with intermittent heavy rains may be experienced over the eastern portions of Cagayan and Isabela, Bicol Region, Romblon, Panay Island, and Cuyo Islands.

Gusty conditions may be experienced today over Northern Luzon, especially in coastal and mountainous areas due to the northeast monsoon enhanced by “Ramon,” PAGASA said.

Sea travel is risky, especially for small sea craft, over the seaboards of areas under storm signals, the seaboards of Northern Luzon, and the eastern seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon due to prevailing or forecast rough sea conditions.
