17 areas still under Signal No. 1 due to Auring

At 7:00 AM today, the center of Tropical Auring was estimated based on all available data at 205 km East Northeast of Maasin City, Southern Leyte or 85 km East of Guiuan, Eastern Samar.

It is moving North Northwestward at 20 km/h with maximum sustained winds of 45 km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 55 km/h.

Moderate to heavy rains over Bicol Region, Northern Samar, Samar, Eastern Samar, Biliran, Leyte, Marinduque, Romblon, and Quezon would be felt today, Monday. Light to moderate with at times heavy rains over and the rest of Visayas, MIMAROPA, and CALABARZON would also be experienced.

In the next 24 hours, the combined effects of the Northeast Monsoon and “AURING” will bring strong breeze conditions with occasionally higher gusts over the areas where Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) #1 is in effect, as well as over Aurora, Quezon, Marinduque, Romblon, Oriental Mindoro, Batanes, Babuyan Islands, the northern portions of Ilocos Norte and mainland Cagayan, Cuyo Islands, Cagayancillo Islands, and the rest of Visayas and Bicol Region.

On the forecast track and its probability cone, the Auring may initially make landfall over Eastern Samar in the next 6 to 12 hours as a tropical depression or a remnant low pressure area.
