    "Bagyong Emong' has maximum sustained winds of 55 km/h near the center, gustiness of up to 70 km/h, and central pressure of 1002 hPa.

    TROPICAL CYCLONE WIND SIGNALS IN EFFECT

    TCWS No. 1 (30-60 km/h Strong winds prevailing or expected in 36 hours)
    • Batanes

    TRACK AND INTENSITY OUTLOOK

    On the forecast track, 'Emong' may exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility this morning.

    The high movement speed of the tropical cyclone, the weak nature of its circulation, and the frictional effects of Taiwan’s rugged terrain prevents it from further intensifying. It is forecast to maintain its strength until it makes landfall over coast of Fujian or Guangdong country in southeastern China this morning or afternoon.

    HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND AREAS


    Severe Winds

    Strong winds (strong breeze to near gale) will continue to prevail over Batanes. Winds will gradually weaken in the coming hours as the tropical depression moves away from Extreme Northern Luzon.

    HAZARDS AFFECTING COASTAL WATERS

    Under the influence of the tropical depression, rough seas (2.5 to 4.0 m) will be experienced over the seaboards of Batanes and Cagayan including Babuyan Islands.

    Sea travel is risky over these waters, especially for those using small seacrafts. Mariners without the proper experience should immediately seek safe harbor.

    TROPICAL CYCLONES

    'Emong', the fifth tropical cyclone for 2021, developed into Tropical Depression while east of Eastern Samar on Sunday, July 4.

    PAGASA predicts that 1–3 tropical cyclones may enter the PAR this month.

    On average, there are 20 tropical cyclones that could form or enter the PAR each year. Only half of those are projected to make landfall.

    The weather agency declared the onset of the rainy season on Friday, June 5.
