MANILA, Philippines — Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal Number 2 was raised over Catanduanes on Wednesday afternoon as Tropical Storm “Ramon” continues to affect the country.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said that as of 4 p.m., Ramon was moving west-northwest and spotted 390 kilometers east of Catarman, Northern Samar, registering maximum sustained winds of 65 kilometers per hour (kph) and gustiness of 80 kph.

Meanwhile, the state weather bureau placed six provinces under Signal No. 1: Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay, Sorsogon, Eastern Samar, and Northern Samar.

As this developed, Pagasa said residents of the eastern portions of Cagayan and Isabela, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, and Catanduanes can expect some light to moderate with occasional heavy rains.

On the other hand, it added, light to moderate with intermittent heavy rains may be experienced over Apayao, Aurora, Quezon, and the rest of Cagayan, Isabela, and Bicol Region.

Aside from Ramon, the state weather bureau is also monitoring another weather disturbance outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).
