No signal warning in NegOcc, but expect heavy rains due to Agaton


The entire province of Negros Occidental, including its capital, Bacolod City was not included in areas under Signal No. 1 as tropical cyclone Agaton continues to move to Visayas region.

But the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAG-ASA) in its 5AM advisory said that the entire province will continue to experience moderate with occasional heavy rains.

The public and the disaster risk reduction and management council concerned are advised to monitor the weather condition.

The center of Agaton was estimated based on all available data including those from Guiuan Doppler Weather Radar over the coastal waters of Tanauan, Leyte (11.1°N, 125.1°E).

It has a maximum sustained winds of 65 km/h near the center, a gustiness of up to 90 km/h, and central pressure of 998 hPa.
