    'Bagyong Ferdie' PAGASA weather update August 10, 2020

    Tropical cyclone wind signal No. 1 (30-60 km/h winds prevailing now or expected in 36 hours) was raised over these areas:
    • western portion of Ilocos Norte (Badoc, Pinili, Currimao, Batac City, Paoay, San Nicolas, Laoag City, Pasuquin, Bacarra, Burgos)
    • western portion of Ilocos Sur (Magsingal, Santo Domingo, San Ildefonso, San Vicente, San Juan, Cabugao, Sinait, Santa Catalina).

    Impacts of the wind:
    • very light or no damage to low risk structures,
    • light damage to medium to high risk structures
    • some banana plants are tilted, a few downed and leaves are generally damaged
    • twigs of small trees may be broken.
    • rice crops, however, may suffer significant damage when it is in its flowering stage.

    Hazards affecting land

    The combined effects of 'Bagyong Ferdie' and the enhanced Southwest Monsoon will bring strong breeze-force to near gale-force winds over Ilocos Region, Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Metro Manila, CALABARZON, and MIMAROPA, especially in areas under Signal No. 1.

    Gusty conditions are more likely in coastal and mountainous regions of these areas.

    Today, 'Ferdie' and the enhanced Southwest Monsoon will bring monsoon rains over Ilocos Region, Abra, Benguet, Zambales, Bataan, and occasional rains over Batanes, Cagayan, Metro Manila, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, and the rest of Cordillera Administrative Region, and Central Luzon.

    Flooding and rain-induced landslide may occur during heavy or prolonged rainfall especially in areas that are highly or very highly susceptible to these hazards.

    Hazards affecting coastal waters

    Sea travel is risky over the seaboards of areas under Signal No. 1 due to rough to very rough seas (3.0-4.0 m).

    Gale Warning is in effect over the seaboards of Zambales, Bataan, western coast of Batangas, western coast of Occidental Mindoro including Lubang Island, Calamian Islands, Batanes, Cagayan including Babuyan Islands, and Isabela (2.5 to 4.5 m). Sea travel is risky over these areas due to rough to very rough seas.

    Those with small seacrafts are advised to take precautionary measures while venturing out over the seaboards of Visayas and the rest of Luzon due to moderate to rough seas (1.2 to 2.8 m).

    Other weather disturbance being monitored

    At 4:00 a.m. today, Tropical Storm Jangmi (Enteng) was estimated based on all available data at 1,135 km North Northeast of Extreme Northern Luzon. It currently has maximum sustained winds of 85 km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 105 km/h. It is moving northward at 40 km/h and is forecast to make landfall over South Jeolla Province in South Korea this afternoon.

    Meanwhile, the Tropical Depression outside the PAR was estimated based on all available data at 2,580 km East Northeast of Extreme Northern Luzon. It has maximum sustained winds of 55 km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 70 km/h. It is moving west-southwestward at 15 km/h and remains unlikely to enter the PAR.
