Tropical Depression Hanna - August 7 Weather Updates
Typhoon Hanna – August 8 Weather Updates
“HANNA” HAS INTENSIFIED FURTHER AS IT CONTINUES TO MOVE TOWARDS THE DIRECTION OF SOUTHERN RYUKYU ISLANDS.
  • The outer rainbands of “HANNA” will bring light to moderate with at times heavy rains and gusty winds over Batanes and Babuyan Group of Islands until tomorrow (08 August).
  • Tomorrow (08 August), moderate to heavy monsoon rains may affect Metro Manila, Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Zambales, Bataan, Rizal, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, and the northern portions of Palawan (including Calamian and Cuyo Islands). Light to moderate with at times heavy rains may prevail over the rest of Luzon and Western Visayas.
  • On Friday (09 August), moderate to heavy monsoon rains may affect Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, and Occidental Mindoro. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains may prevail over Metro Manila, the rest of Luzon, and Western Visayas.
  • Residents in the aforementioned areas, especially those living in areas identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to floods and rain-induced landslides, are advised to take precautionary measures, coordinate with local disaster risk reduction and management offices, and continue monitoring for updates, especially the Thunderstorm Advisories and Heavy Rainfall Warnings to be issued by PAGASA Regional Services Divisions.
  • Occasional gusty conditions will continue over the western sections of Luzon and Visayas due to the enhanced Southwest Monsoon.
