TYPHOON UPDATE: Maring to exit Philippines on Tuesday morning

Maring, according to the Philippine weather bureau, could exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Tuesday morning, October 12.



PAGASA said Maring will continue to cross the Luzon Strait, and then the West Philippine Sea.

Maring made landfall in Fuga Island at 8:10 pm on Monday, October 11, continuing to batter Northern Luzon with massive rainfall that has triggered floods.

Fuga Island is part of the Babuyan Group of Islands and is under the municipality of Aparri in the province of Cagayan.

As of 10 pm on Monday, Maring was over the coastal waters of Aparri, moving west at a slower 15 kilometers per hour from the previous 25 km/h.


In its 2 pm bulletin on Monday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Severe Tropical Storm Maring (Kompasu) could pass very close to the Babuyan Islands as early as Monday afternoon, October 11.

PAGASA also said there is possibility that Maring could landfall in mainland northern Cagayan, as it was only 150 kilometers east northeast of Aparri, Cagayan, or 170 kilometers east southeast of Calayan, Cagayan.

Once outside the utside PAR, Maring could intensify into a typhoon on Tuesday afternoon or evening.

It may make landfall in the Chinese island province of Hainan on Wednesday morning or afternoon, October 13.
