MANILA, Philippines – Tropical storm Ramon is expected to make landfall anytime during the weekend, according to the state weather agency PAGASA on Thursday (November 14).

As of PAGASA’s 10:00 AM forecast, tropical storm Ramon was located at 290 kilometers East Northeast of Virac, Catanduanes or 410 kilometers East of Daet, Camarines Norte.

It is packed with maximum sustained winds of 65 kilometers per hour and gustiness of up to 80 kph and is moving North Northwest at 20 kph.

Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) No. 2 remains hoisted over Catanduanes while Signal No. 1 is raised over the Eastern portion of Isabela (Divilacan, Palanan, Dinapigue); Northern Aurora (Dilasag, Casiguran, Dinalungan); Polillo Island; Camarines Norte; Camarines Sur; Albay and Sorsogon; as well as Eastern Samar and Northern Samar.

PAGASA said TS Ramon is likely to make landfall between Saturday evening (November 16) and Monday morning (November 17) but it is expected to weaken into a tropical depression once it hits landmass.

The weather agency said light to moderate with intermittent heavy rains will prevail in Bicol Region, Quezon, and the eastern portions of Isabela and Cagayan.

Residents in these areas are advised to take precautionary measures against possible landslides and flashfloods.

Meanwhile, sea travel remains dangerous especially for small sea crafts over the seaboards of areas under TCWS, the seaboards of Northern Luzon, and the eastern seaboards of Aurora and Quezon due to prevailing or forecast rough sea conditions.
