Tropical Storm “Ramon” slightly weakens; three areas still under Signal No. 1

(Eagle News) — Several areas remain under Signal No. 1 even as Tropical Storm “Ramon” slightly weakened.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said Signal No. 1 remains hoisted over the eastern portion of Cagayan (Santa Ana, Gonzaga, Lal-lo, Gattaran, Baggao, and PeƱablanca), eastern portion of Isabela (Maconacon, Divilacan, Palanan, and Dinapigue), and Northern Aurora (Dilasag, Casiguran, and Dinalungan) with Tropical Storm “Ramon,” last spotted 460 km east of Tuguegarao City, Cagayan, packing maximum sustained winds of up to 65 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 80 kph.

PAGASA said tomorrow, light to moderate with intermittent heavy rains may be experienced over the eastern portions of Cagayan and Isabela, and Northern Aurora.

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.

The weather bureau said sea travel is risky, especially for small sea craft, over the seaboards of areas under a storm signal, the seaboards of Northern Luzon, and the eastern seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon due to prevailing or forecast rough sea conditions.
