'Bagyong Tisoy' is forecast to make landfall over Bicol Region between Monday afternoon (December 2) and Tuesday early morning (December 3).

Tropical cyclone wind signal (TCWS) No. 1 (30-60 km/h winds prevailing or expected in 36 hours) is up over Eastern Samar and eastern section of Northern Samar (Laoang, Palapag, Mapanas, Gamay, Lapinig, Catubig and Las Navas).

Residents in the aforementioned areas, especially those living in areas identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to flooding and rain-induced landslides, are advised to take appropriate actions, coordinate with local disaster risk reduction and management offices, and continue monitoring for updates, especially the Thunderstorm or Rainfall Advisories and Heavy Rainfall Warnings to be issued by PAGASA Regional Services Divisions.

Sea travel is risky, especially for small sea crafts, over the seaboards of areas under TCWS, the northern and western seaboards of Northern Luzon and the eastern seaboards of the country due to prevailing or forecast rough sea conditions.
