THE state weather bureau has lifted all storm wind signals nationwide as Tropical Storm Jenny is now outside the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR).

As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, August 28, the center of Jenny was located at 510 kilometers west of Dagupan City, Pangasinan or outside PAR, packing maximum winds of up to 75 kilometers per hour (km/h) near the center and gusts of up to 90 km/h.

The storm was moving west southwest at 40 km/h, said the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

The weather bureau said though that tonight, light to moderate with intermittent heavy rains will be experienced over Western Visayas, Negros Oriental, Mindoro Provinces, Romblon, and Palawan (including Calamian and Cuyo Islands) due to the Southwest Monsoon.

Residents of these areas, especially those living in areas identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to floods and rain-induced landslides, were advised to take precautionary measures, coordinate with local disaster risk reduction and management offices, and continue monitoring for updates.

Pagasa said sea travel remains risky over the seaboards of Luzon and the western seaboard of Visayas due to potentially rough sea conditions. (SunStar Philippines)
