MANILA – lIocos Norte, Batanes, and the Babuyan Islands will continue to experience rain showers and thunderstorms due to Tropical Depression Carina, the weather bureau said Tuesday afternoon.

“Carina was last eyed 140 km. west-northwest of Basco, Batanes and is slowly moving northwestward. It packs a maximum sustained winds of 45 kph near the center, and gustiness of up to 55 kph,” it said.

As of 5 p.m., the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said all tropical cyclone warning signals have been lifted.

However, coastal areas in extreme Northern Luzon may experience intermittent gusts.

The rest of the country may also experience isolated rain showers caused by localized thunderstorms.

PAGASA warned that flash floods or landslides are possible during severe thunderstorms.

Meanwhile, moderate to rough seas will prevail over the seaboards of Batanes, Ilocos Norte, Cagayan, including the Babuyan Islands, and Isabela in the next 24 hours.

Those with small seacraft are advised not to venture out to sea.

Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate with slight to moderate seas.

PAGASA expects “Carina” to weaken to a low-pressure area either Tuesday night or Wednesday. (PNA)
