Typhoon Labuyo (Utor) accelerated and intensified slightly and is now over the West Philippine Sea, state weather forecasters said Monday afternoon.

PAGASA said Labuyo remains on track to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) by Tuesday, while at least 19 areas are still under storm signals.

"Paglabas niya ng PAR, magkakaroon tayo ng improved weather conditions," PAGASA forecaster Jori Loiz said in a news briefing, parts of which were aired on dzBB radio.

Labuyo had made landfall over Aurora before dawn Monday and ripped through Northern Luzon. It exited the land mass of Northern Luzon shortly after noon.

It left at least one person dead in its wake.

As of 4 p.m., PAGASA said Labuyo was estimated at 230 km northwest of Baguio City or 200 km west of Sinait, Ilocos Sur.

It packed maximum sustained winds of 150 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 185 kph, and is forecast to move northwest at 24 kph.

By Tuesday afternoon, PAGASA said Labuyo is expected to be 480 km northwest of Baguio City or outside the Philippine area of responsibility.

Storm signals

Under Storm Signal No. 2 are (7):

Nueva Vizcaya Ifugao Mountain Province Ilocos Sur Benguet La Union Pangasinan

Under Storm Signal No. 1 are (12):

Abra Kalinga Apayao Isabela Aurora Quirino Nueva Ecija Tarlac Ilocos Norte Pampanga Bataan Zambales


PAGASA said Labuyo may still bring rainfall of 4 to 15 mm per hour (moderate to heavy) within its 600-km diameter.

It warned residents in low-lying and mountainous areas under storm signals to be alert against possible flash floods and landslides.

Also, it said those living in coastal areas under Signal No. 2 should be alert against storm surges.

PAGASA said Labuyo will enhance the southwest monsoon, which will bring moderate to occasionally heavy rains over the western section of Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

"Fishermen especially those using small seacrafts are advised not to venture out into the northern seaboard of Northern Luzon, seaboards of Southern Luzon and western seaboard of Visayas due to big waves generated by Typhoon Labuyo," it said.

"Magiging maalon ang karagatan," Loiz said. — TJD, GMA News
