Typhoon Mina partially hits Cagayan, 3 areas under signal 4

At least three areas were placed under Storm Signal No. 4 early Saturday as Typhoon Mina (Nanmadol) moved toward Cagayan province, state weather forecasters said.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Mina was some 90 km northeast of Tuguegarao City as of 4 a.m. Saturday.

“Ito umaaligid sa silangang bahagi ng Cagayan, ang estimated landfall ay between 5 and 6 a.m.," PAGASA forecaster Manny Mendoza said in an interview on dzBB radio.

PAGASA, in its Twitter account, said the eye wall of Mina hit Cabutunan Point at the eastern coast of Gonzaga town at about 5:30 a.m.

On the other hand, Mendoza said a high-pressure area north of the Philippines may divert “Mina" to Hong Kong instead of to Taiwan. — LBG, GMA News
