In the latest severe weather bulleting issued by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) at 11 p.m., August 31, Tropical Depression Liwayway has slightly intensified as it moves west-northwestward.

At 10:00 PM, Aug. 31, the center of Tropical Depression “LIWAYWAY” was estimated based on all available data at 335 km Northeast of Guiuan, Eastern Samar or 365 km East of Virac, Catanduanes (13.4°N, 127.6°E). 

With maximum winds of up to 55 km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 70 km/h, Bagyong Liwayway was moving North Northwest at 35 km/h.

The state weather bureau said the trough of “LIWAYWAY” may bring scattered light to moderate rains with at times heavy rain showers over Caraga, Northern Mindanao, Eastern Visayas, and Central Visayas. Meanwhile, Southwest Monsoon will bring scattered light to moderate rains with at times heavy rain showers over Palawan and Western Visayas.

Residents of these 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 / Rainfall Advisories and Heavy Rainfall Warnings to be issued by PAGASA Regional Services Divisions.

“LIWAYWAY” remains less likely to make landfall in the country. Furthermore, this weather disturbance may intensify into a Tropical Storm within 24 hours.

Sea travel is risky over the northern and western seaboards of Northern Luzon, the western seaboard of Central Luzon, and the eastern seaboard of Southern Luzon and Visayas due to potentially rough sea conditions.
