In its severe weather bulletin issued at 5:00 A.M., 03 September 2019, PAGASA said Bagyong Liwayway has intensified further while moving north-northwest over the Philippine Sea.
At 4:00 AM today, the center of Tropical Storm “LIWAYWAY” was estimated based on all available data at 255 km East of Calayan, Cagayan (19.1°N, 123.9°E).
Packing maximum sustained winds of up to 85 km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 105 km/h, Liwayway is moving North Northwest at 20 km/h.
Between today and tomorrow morning, “LIWAYWAY” will bring light to moderate with intermittent heavy rains over Apayao, Cagayan including Babuyan Islands, and Batanes. The Southwest Monsoon will also bring scattered light to moderate rains with at times heavy rain showers over Ilocos Region, Central Luzon, Metro Manila, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, Panay Island, Guimaras, and the rest of Cordillera Administrative Region.
Residents of 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 / Rainfall Advisories and Heavy Rainfall Warnings to be issued by PAGASA Regional Services Divisions.
Those living in the area under Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) #1, Batanes, are advised to take precautionary actions against potentially strong winds.
“LIWAYWAY” remains less likely to make landfall in the country. It is forecast to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility between Wednesday evening and Thursday early morning.
Intensification into a Severe Tropical Storm remains likely within 24 hours.
Sea travel is risky over the seaboards of Luzon, including those under TCWS #1, due to potentially rough sea conditions.
