“On the track forecast, Aghon is forecast to make landfall over the southern portion of Eastern Samar or Dinagat Islands by tomorrow morning as a tropical storm,” Pagasa said.

TD Aghon is the first typhoon to enter the Philippines this year and the rains and cooler temperature it brings are a welcome respite to a country that has been ravaged by extreme heat in the past months due to the prolonged El Niño.
