These areas can expect moderate damage to agriculture, as well as to structures made of light materials. Travel by air or sea is risky.

Lastly, storm warning signal number 1 is in effect over the following areas:

Batanes Bataan Pampanga Bulacan Rizal Northern Quezon including Polilio Island Cavite Laguna Metro Manila

These places can expect winds 45-60 km/h within the next 36 hours.

Flash flooding, landslides, and storm surges are possible in all areas under storm warning signals.

The storm warning signals in other areas have been lifted, the bureau said.

Strongest so far for 2013

Labuyo is expected to weaken as it crosses land, and will pass over Region II, the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), and will exit in the general area of the Ilocos provinces towards the West Philippine Sea.

It is forecast to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) by Tuesday, August 13.

The typhoon, PAGASA said, is the strongest so far this year, in terms of wind speed, while foreign weather bureaus and meteorologists have categorized it as a super typhoon just prior to landfall.

The state weather bureau earlier said they deployed a team of scientists to Aurora to observe and gather data about the storm.

After passing through the Philippines, it is expected to move towards the general area of southeast China and northern Vietnam.

Labuyo will also continue to enhance the southwest monsoon, bringing rain to the rest of the country.

The next PAGASA update is at 11 am. -
