'Maring' upgraded into tropical storm as it traverses West PH Sea

'Maring' upgraded into tropical storm as it traverses West PH Sea”

"MARING", now a tropical storm, maintained its strength as it traversed the West Philippine Sea, the state-run Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in its Wednesday forecast. It is still moving west northwest at 15 kilometers per hour (km/h).

It is now packing maximum sustained winds of 75 kph, with gusts of up to 90 kph.

Official and media reports said three of the fatalities including the infant perished when landslides caused by heavy rain from storm Lannie buried their homes while the fourth victim drowned. PAGASA said flash floods and landslides remain possible.

Some cities and provinces again suspended classes for Wednesday, particularly those who experienced the worst flooding and evacuations on Tuesday, September 12.

Typhoon Talim and Tropical Depression Maring caused heavy rainfall, damaging property and farmland, and forcing residents to flee to safer locations.

PAGASA also warned that sea travel remains risky in the western seaboard of Central Luzon and Southern Luzon.

In addition, reports said heavy rain since late on Monday night brought by Lannie paralysed numerous affected areas due to floods estimated at eight feet deep that inundated highways and roadways.

Meanwhile, Typhoon "Lannie" (international name: Talim) was spotted at 610 km northeast of Basco, Batanes with maximum winds of up to 125 kph and 155 kph. It is expected to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Wednesday evening or early Thursday morning.

Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal Number 1 was raised over Zambales and Bataan provinces, which are expected to experience moderate to occasionally heavy rains.
