Signal no. 3 up in Cagayan, Isabela as Typhoon ‘Goring’ intensifies further

SIGNAL No. 3 has been raised in the province of Cagayan and Isabela as Typhoon “Goring” (international name Saola) intensified further, the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said on Saturday.

Affected areas are the northeastern portion of Cagayan (Santa Ana); and the extreme eastern portion of Isabela (Divilacan, Palanan).

Signal no. 2 remains over the eastern portion of Isabela (Dinapigue, San Mariano, Ilagan City, Maconacon, Cabagan, Tumauini, San Pablo); eastern portion of Cagayan (Peñablanca, Baggao, Gattaran, Lal-Lo, Gonzaga, Santa Teresita, Buguey); and the northern portion of Aurora (Dilasag, Casiguran).

Signal no. 1 is up in Batanes; the rest of Cagayan, including Babuyan Islands, central portion of Aurora (Dinalungan, Dipaculao); Quirino; the rest of Isabela; Apayao; eastern portion of Nueva Vizcaya (Kasibu, Quezon, Diadi, Bagabag, Solano, Villaverde); eastern portion of Ifugao (Lamut, Lagawe, Hingyon, Banaue, Mayoyao, Aguinaldo, Alfonso Lista); eastern portion of Mountain Province (Barlig, Natonin, Paracelis); and Kalinga.

In its 11:00 a.m. bulletin, Pagasa said the location of the center of Goring was estimated at 155 kilometers east of Aparri, Cagayan.

Its maximum sustained winds has intensified from 140 kilometers per hour (kph) to 150 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 185 kph.

“The southwest monsoon enhanced by Goring will bring occasional or monsoon rains over the western portions of Central Luzon, Southern Luzon, and Visayas over the next three days”, Pagasa said.

The state-run weather bureau said forecast rainfall is generally higher in elevated or mountainous areas.

Under these conditions, flooding and rain-induced landslides are possible, especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards.
