CEBU CITY, Philippines— Tropical Storm Goring (International name: SAOLA) continues to intensify while moving south southwestward, according to the latest bulletin of Pagasa.

In its 11 a.m. bulletin on Friday, August 25, 2023, Pagasa said the  location of the center of Tropical Storm Goring was estimated to be 225 kilometers east southeast of Basco, Batanes, or 270 km east of Calayan, Cagayan.

TS Goring now packs maximum sustained winds of 85 km/h near the center, gustiness of up to 105 km/h, and central pressure of 994 hPa.


TCWS No.1  is in effect in Batanes, the eastern portion of Babuyan Islands (Babuyan Is., Camiguin Is.), the eastern portion of mainland Cagayan (Santa Ana, Gonzaga, Lal-Lo, Gattaran, Baggao, Peñablanca, Santa Teresita, Buguey, Camalaniugan, Aparri), and the eastern portion of Isabela (Maconacon, Divilacan, Palanan, Dinapigue, San Mariano, San Pablo, Cabagan, Tumauini, Ilagan City).

Minimal to minor impacts from strong winds are also possible within any of the areas where Wind Signal No.1 is hoisted, Pagasa said.  

TS Goring is forecast to move south southwestward or southward over the waters east of Northern Luzon until Saturday evening, then turn generally south or southeastward for the rest of tomorrow through Sunday afternoon. Afterwards, the tropical cyclone will loop northward before turning to the northwest on Tuesday towards Luzon Strait. For the most of the forecast period, Goring is forecast to move slowly, Pagasa said in its bulletin. 

Typhoon category

Due to highly favorable environment, GORING is forecast to rapidly intensify and may reach typhoon category by Saturday. It may reach its peak intensity on Sunday evening, after which it is forecast to maintain strength until the end of the forecast period. The potential for developing into a super typhoon is not ruled out. 

The next tropical cyclone bulletin will be issued at 5 p.m. today.
