Sea trips in northern Cebu suspended due to TD Jolina
CEBU CITY, Philippines – Sea trips bound to and passing around northern Cebu are suspended on Tuesday morning, September 7, due to Tropical Depression Jolina (international name: Conson).
The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa), in its severe weather bulletin issued at 8 a.m., placed several localities in northern Cebu under Storm Signal No. 1.
This covered the towns of Carmen, Tuburan, Catmon, Sogod, Tabuelan, Borbon, Tabogon, San Remigio, City of Bogo, Medellin, Daanbantayan, Camotes Islands and Bantayan Islands.
As a result, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) assigned in the affected areas announced on Tuesday that no sea vessels will be allowed to set sail until the storm signal is lifted.
Pagasa spotted the center of Jolina over the coastal waters of Almagro, Samar as of 7 a.m. on Tuesday as it heads towards southern Luzon.
It packs winds with speed of up to 120 kilometers per hour (kph) and gustiness reaching up to 150 kph while moving at a west-northwestward direction at 15 kph.
