CEBU CITY, Philippines – Several localities in northern and midwestern Cebu are still under Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal (TCWS) as of Wednesday, June 2, due to the presence of Tropical Storm Dante (international name: Choi-Wan), the state weather bureau announced.

The 8 a.m. Severe Weather Bulletin of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) placed Pinamungahan, Toledo City, Balamban, Asturias, Tuburan, Tabuelan, Medellin, San Remigio, Daanbantayan and Bantayan Islands (Bantayan, Madridejos, Santa Fe) under TCWS No. 1.

This meant these areas can expect wind with strengths ranging between 30 to 60 kilometers per hour (kph) within the next 36 hours.   

TCWS has been lifted in other areas in Cebu on Wednesday morning.

Dante made its first landfall over Eastern Samar province on Tuesday evening, according to Pagasa. A second landfall was recorded in Masbate province on Wednesday morning.  Dante is projected to make its third landfall over Romblon.

Dante maintained its strength with wind speeds of 65 kph, and gustiness reaching up to 90 kph while moving in a westward direction at a speed of 25 kph.
