‘Gardo’ out of PH — Pagasa


TYPHOON “Gardo” (international name: Maria) left the Philippines on Tuesday night, according to the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

“As of 6 p.m., Typhoon Gardo is now outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR),” the state-run weather bureau said in an advisory.

The typhoon was located at 585 kilometers (km) northeast of Basco, Batanes, packing maximum sustained winds of 180 kilometers per hour (kph) and gusts of 245 kph as it continued to head for Taiwan at 30 kph.

However, Gardo will continue to enhance the southwest monsoon over Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, Mindoro, Northern Palawan and Romblon.

Occasional rains will persist over western Visayas and the rest of Central and Southern Luzon until Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Metro Manila will experience monsoon rains starting on Friday.
Residents are advised to take precautionary measures against possible flooding and landslides.

The rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers caused by localized thunderstorms, Pagasa said. GLEE JALEA
