Signal No. 1 raised in Surigao as LPA strengthens into tropical depression

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) on Thursday morning raised public storm warning signal no. 1 in several areas in the country after a low-pressure area earlier spotted east of Mindanao strengthened into a tropical depression.

In its 8:15 a.m. weather bulletin, Pagasa said tropical depression "Quinta" packs maximum sustained winds of 45 kilometers per hour near the center and declared the following areas under Signal No. 1:


• Masbate, and
• Romblon


• Camiguin,
• Biliran,
• Eastern Samar,
• Western Samar,
• Leyte,
• Southern Leyte,
• Bohol,
• Cebu,
• Negros Oriental,
• Negros Occidental,
• Iloilo,
• Aklan,
• Capiz,
• Antique,
• Guimaras island, and
• Cuyo island.


• Surigao del Norte, including Siargao and Dinagao islands.

In its weather bulletin, Pagasa said "Quinta" is currently 40 kilometers northeast of Surigao City and is moving west at 19 kilometers per hour, and is expected to be 120 kilometers southwest of Iloilo City by Friday morning.

By Saturday morning, the tropical depression is expected to be 160 kilometers west northwest of Puerto Princesa, Palawan and 570 kilometers northwest of the Puerto Princesa Sunday morning.

Pagasa said the tropical depression may cause rice in flowering stage to suffer significant damage. Damages are also expected on houses made from light materials and banana plantations in affected aresa.

Pagasa also said sea travel for small seacrafts and fishing boats is risky due to the weather disturbance. -(Johanna Camille Sisante, GMANews.TV)
