4 areas remain under Signal No. 3 due to Typhoon Jolina

Four areas remain under Tropical Wind Signal no.2 as Typhoon Jolina continues to move west northwestward over Samar Sea towards Masbate, September 7.

The center of the eye of Typhoon Jolina was estimated based on all available data over the coastal waters of Almagro, Samar.

It has a maximum sustained winds of 120 km/h near the center, gustiness of up to 150 km/h, and central pressure of 990 hPa.

Strong winds or higher extend outwards up to 180 km from the center.

In the next 24 hours, Typhoon Jolina may bring heavy to intense with at times torrential rains over Northern Samar, Eastern Samar, Samar, Leyte, Biliran, Sorsogon, Albay, Romblon, and Masbate. Moderate to heavy with at times intense rains are also likely over the southern portion of Quezon, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, and the rest of Bicol Region and Visayas.

Under these conditions, scattered to widespread flooding (including flash floods) and rain-induced landslides are possible especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazard as identified in hazard maps.
