Storm Signal No. 4 remained in effect over extreme northern Luzon as Typhoon Mina hovered 130 kilometers east of Tuguegarao City, Cagayan as of the 11 p.m. severe weather bulletin of state weather forecaster PAGASA.

The typhoon, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), “maintained its strength as it continues to endanger northern Luzon" with its maximum sustained winds of 195 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gustiness of up to 230 kph.

Under Storm Signal No. 4 are northern Cagayan, the Calayan Islands and the Babuyan group of islands, which will experience gale force winds of over 185 kph.

“Estimated rainfall amount is from 15-25 mm per hour within the 600 km diameter of the typhoon," said PAGASA’s weather forecasters who signed on the bulletin.

PAGASA hoisted Storm Signal No. 3 over Isabela, the rest of Cagayan province, and the Batanes Group of Islands.

Storm Signal No. 2 was raised over northern Aurora, Quirino, Ifugao, Mountain Province, Kalinga, and Apayao.

The rest of Aurora and the provinces of Nueva Vizcaya, Nueva Ecija, Benguet, La Union, Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Norte, and Abra were all placed under Storm Signal No. 1.
