Nine areas remain under Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) No. 1 as Typhoon Goring continues to weaken while it heads north northeastward over the country's sea, according to the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration's (PAGASA) latest bulletin on Monday.

As of 10 AM, PAGASA said Goring was located 245 kilometers (km) of east northeast of Casiguran, Aurora, and it is moving north northeastward at the speed of 15 km per hour (kph).

Typhoon Goring has maximum sustained winds of 155 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 190 kph.

In the next 12 hours, PAGASA said Goring will either maintain its strength or slightly weaken further.


TCWS No. 1 is still in effect over the areas of:

  • Batanes
  • Babuyan Islands
  • the northern and eastern portions of mainland Cagayan (Camalaniugan, Pamplona, Gonzaga, Santa Teresita, Baggao, Buguey, Santa Ana, Claveria, Aparri, Ballesteros, Abulug, Sanchez-Mira, Santa Praxedes, Allacapan, Lal-Lo, Lasam, Peñablanca, Iguig, Amulung, Gattaran, Alcala)
  • the eastern portion of Isabela (Dinapigue, San Mariano, San Guillermo, Ilagan City, Tumauini, San Pablo, Cabagan, Maconacon, Divilacan, Palanan)
  • the northern and central portions of Aurora (Casiguran, Dinalungan, Dilasag, Baler, Dipaculao, Maria Aurora, San Luis)
  • Polillo Islands
  • the northern and eastern portions of Camarines Norte (Capalonga, Jose Panganiban, Paracale, Vinzons, Talisay, Daet, Mercedes) including Calaguas Islands
  • the northeastern portion of Camarines Sur (Siruma, Tinambac, Lagonoy, Garchitorena, Caramoan)
  • the northern portion of Catanduanes (Panganiban, Caramoran, Viga, Bagamanoc, Pandan)

Heavy rainfall ranging 50 to 100 mm is expected in the northeastern portion of mainland Cagayan on Monday, PAGASA said.

The state weather bureau warned that flooding and landslides induced by rain "are still expected especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible" as well as "localities that experienced considerable amounts of rainfall for the past several days."

PAGASA reinstated that Goring may pass close to Batanes at or near its peak intensity on Wednesday morning or evening and leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Thursday morning or afternoon.


Once it successfully exited, the state weather bureau said Goring may cross the Taiwan Strait "before making landfall over southeastern China on Friday evening or on Saturday early morning."
