Typhoon Ineng (Goni) is moving away from the Philippines, with only Batanes under storm signals before noon Sunday, Aug. 23, state weather agency PAGASA said.
In its 11 a.m. update, PAGASA said Ineng was estimated at 360 km northeast of Basco, Batanes as of 10 a.m.
PAGASA said Ineng is expected to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility “tonight (August 23) until early morning tomorrow (August 24).”
The typhoon packed maximum sustained winds of 140 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 170 kph, and is forecast to move north-northeast at 17 kph.
By Monday morning, it is expected to be outside the PAR at 720 km northeast of Basco, Batanes.
Ineng has moderate to heavy rainfall within its 500-km diameter.
Meanwhile, the enhanced Southwest Monsoon will bring rain over Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Ilocos, Cordillera and Zambales, Bataan and Calayan and Babuyan islands.
“These areas are alerted against possible flash floods and landslides,” PAGASA said.
PAGASA also reminded fisherfolk not to venture out over the seaboards of Luzon.
