Public Storm Warning Signals elsewhere are now lowered.

Estimated rainfall amount is from 15 – 25 mm per hour (heavy – intense) within the 400 km diameter of the Tropical Storm.

Tropical Storm “DINDO” is expected to enhance the Southwest Monsoon that will bring rains over Southern Luzon and Visayas, especially the western section, which may trigger landslides and flashfloods and possible occurrence of storm surge over the coastal areas under PSWS # 2.

Fishing boats and other small seacrafts are advised not to venture out into the Seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon and Western Visayas due to the combined effect of the Tropical Storm and the Southwest Monsoon.

The public and the disaster coordinating councils concerned are advised to take appropriate actions and watch for the next bulletin to be issued at 11 PM tonight and the hourly updates.

Below is Dindo’s PAGASA Track as of 2:00 pm today.
