Signal No. 2 still hoisted over Catanduanes; N. Aurora, five other areas under Signal No. 1

(Eagle News) — Less areas now remain under storm signals even as Tropical Storm “Ramon” continued to move north-northwestward.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said Signal No. 1 has been lifted in Sorsogon, Northern Samar, and Eastern Samar, but it remains hoisted over the eastern portion of Isabela (Divilacan, Palanan, Dinapigue), Northern Aurora (Dilasag, Casiguran, Dinalungan), Polillo Island, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, and Albay.

Signal No. 2 is still up over Catanduanes.

According to PAGASA, ¬†as of 4 p.m., the center of Tropical Storm “Ramon” was estimated 500 kilometers east of Baler, Aurora, packing maximum sustained winds of up to 65 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 80 kph.

It is moving at 15 kph.

PAGASA said tomorrow, Friday, Nov. 15, light to moderate with occasional heavy rains may be experienced over the eastern portion of Cagayan and Isabela.

Light to moderate with intermittent heavy rains, on the other hand, are expected over Northern Aurora, Camarines Norte, and Polillo Island.

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 Aurora and Quezon due to prevailing or forecast rough sea conditions, PAGASA said.
