Sea travel between Bacolod and Iloilo cities has been suspended today, December 18, due to tropical depression Vicky.

The Philippine Coast Guard cancelled all inbound and outbound travels after the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration raised tropical cyclone signal number 1 in both Bacolod and Iloilo cities.

In its latest advisory, PAGASA said moderate to heavy and sometimes intense rain will be experience over Visayas today.


Vicky developed into a tropical depression at 2:00 AM today, making it the 22nd tropical cyclone of the year and the first for the month of December.

This tropical depression is forecast to move generally west-northwestward and make landfall in the vicinity of Davao Oriental-Surigao del Sur area in the next 12 hours.

After crossing Mindanao, the tropical depression is likely to emerge over the Bohol Sea tomorrow early morning, pass close or over Siquijor, and make another landfall over the southern portion of Negros Island.

By tomorrow morning or afternoon, it is likely to emerge of the Sulu Sea. It is forecast to remain a tropical depression while crossing the Philippine archipelago.
