Domeng exits PH—Pagasa

“DOMENG” (international name: Maliksi) has intensified into a typhoon but was now outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), the state-run weather bureau said on Sunday.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), Domeng was 1,045 kilometers (km) east-northeast of Basco, Batanes at 9 a.m.

It packed stronger winds of 120 kilometers per hour (kph) and gusts of up to 145 kph as it moved northeast at 37 kph.

“Domeng does not have any direct effect to the country anymore but it will continue to trigger the southwest monsoon or habagat which will affect Luzon,” weather specialist Gener Quitlong told The Manila Times.

Pagasa said monsoon rains over Luzon, especially over the western section, would continue until early next week.

Visayas will have cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and isolated thunderstorms caused by the monsoon trough.

Mindanao will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers because of localized thunderstorms.

The public is advised to continue monitoring for updates, take appropriate actions against possible flooding and landslides.

Pagasa declared last Friday the start of the rainy season because of the “widespread rainfall recorded in most Pagasa stations during the past few days.”
