Rains continue over E. Visayas due to TD ‘Maring’

MANILA – Eastern Visayas will continue to experience rains due to the trough of Tropical Depression (TD) Maring, the weather bureau said Friday.

In its 5 a.m. bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Maring was last observed 595 kilometers east of Virac, Catanduanes, or 540 km. east of Catarman, Northern Samar.

It packs maximum sustained winds of 45 km. per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 55 kph.

Light to moderate, with at times heavy rains will continue to prevail over Eastern Visayas. Isolated scattered flooding and rain-induced landslides are possible, especially in areas highly susceptible to these hazards.

PAGASA forecast Bicol region, Central Visayas, and Caraga to have scattered rain showers and thunderstorms due to to the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ).

Metro Manila and the rest of the country will experience isolated rain showers or thunderstorms, also due to the ITCZ.

Meanwhile, no tropical cyclone was hoisted over any part of the country. However, moderate rough seas will continue to prevail over the seaboards of Luzon and the eastern and western seaboards of the Visayas and Mindanao.

These sea conditions are risky for those using small seacrafts, PAGASA said.

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