Bagyong Helen News : Storm signal number 2 raised in Cagayan, Isabela

Tropical Storm “HELEN” has maintained its strength and increases its threat to Northern Luzon.

Residents living in low lying and mountainous areas under public storm warning signal #2 and #1 are alerted against possible flashfloods and landslides. Likewise, those living in coastal areas under public storm warning #2 are alerted against big waves or storm surges generated by this tropical cyclone.

Tropical Storm “HELEN” is expected to enhance the Southwest Monsoon that will bring rains over Luzon and Visayas especially over the Western section.

Estimated rainfall amount is from 15 – 35 mm per hour (heavy – torrential) within 400 km diameter of Tropical Storm.

Intermittent light to moderate rains (2.5 – 7.5 mm/hr) are now affecting Central and Southern Luzon becoming more frequent moderate to heavy rains (7.5 – 10.0 mm/hr) tonight over Camarines provinces, Quezon province, Rizal, Bulacan, Pampanga, Laguna, Cavite, Batangas, Mindoro, Bataan, Zambales and Metro Manila.

Fishing boats and other small seacrafts are advised not to venture out into the Seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon and Visayas due to Tropical Storm “HELEN” and the Southwest Monsoon.

The public and the disaster coordinating councils concerned are advised to take appropriate actions and watch for the next bulletin to be issued at 5 AM tomorrow.

Public storm warning signal number 2 has been raised over Cagayan and Isabela provinces amid the threat of heavy rains and strong winds being brought by tropical storm “Helen,” PAGASA said Monday night.

In its 11 p.m. advisory, the state weather bureau said the 2 provinces should expect winds of 61-100 kilometers per hour in at least 24 hours.

The storm could result in moderate damage to farms, trees, and houses in Isabela and Cagayan, PAGASA warned.

Public storm warning signal number 1 has also been hoisted over Abra, Aurora, Quirino, Ilocos Norte, Nueva Vizcaya, Ifugao, Mountain Province, Kalinga, Apayao, the Babuyan and Calayan group of islands, and the Batanes group of islands.

Areas under signal number 1 will experience winds of 30-60 kph within the next 36 hours, PAGASA said.

“Residents living in low lying and mountainous areas under public storm warning signal #2 and #1 are alerted against possible flashfloods and landslides,” the weather bureau said. “Likewise, those living in coastal areas under public storm warning #2 are alerted against big waves or storm surges generated by this tropical cyclone.”

PAGASA said tropical storm “Helen” (international name Kai-tak) is expected to enhance the southwest monsoon (habagat) that will bring rains over Luzon and Visayas, especially over the regions’ western sections.

The storm is bringing estimated rainfall of between 15 – 35 mm per hour (heavy to torrential) within its 400 km diameter.

Light to moderate rains now affecting central and southern Luzon will become moderate to heavy rains over Camarines provinces, Quezon province, Rizal, Bulacan, Pampanga, Laguna, Cavite, Batangas, Mindoro, Bataan, Zambales and Metro Manila, PAGASA said.

It advised fishing boats and other small seacraft not to venture out into the seaboards of central and southern Luzon and the Visayas because of the tropical storm and the southwest monsoon.

As of 10 p.m. Monday, the center of tropical storm “Helen” was estimated to be at 350 km east of Casiguran, Aurora.

The storm, which is packing maximum sustained winds of 65 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 80 kph, is moving west at 15 kph.

The storm is expected to be 120 km east of Tuguegarao City by Tuesday night and at 160 km north of Laoag City by Wednesday night.

It is expected to be at 430 km west northwest of Basco, Batanes by Thursday night.

“The public and the disaster coordinating councils concerned are advised to take appropriate actions and watch for the next bulletin to be issued at 5 a.m. tomorrow,” PAGASA said.
