Other Hazards and Information

Possible Storm Surge height in surge prone areas: more than 3.0 meters over several coastal areas in Catanduanes, Camarines Norte, and Camarines Sur; up to 3 meters over several coastal areas in Batangas, Quezon, Albay, and Marinduque.

Sea travel is risky over the seaboards of areas under TCWS, the seaboards of Northern Luzon, the western seaboard of Palawan, central seaboards of Visayas, and the northern and eastern seaboards of Mindanao due to prevailing or forecast rough sea conditions which may be perilous for maritime activities, especially for those using small seacrafts.

Gusty conditions may also be experienced in areas in Northern Luzon that are not under any TCWS (especially in the coastal and mountainous zones) due to the Northeast Monsoon.
