MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration on Monday said it is monitoring two weather disturbances that entered the Philippine area of responsibility.

"Mayroon po tayong dalawang bagyong binabantayan ngayon. Iyong isa ay Typhoon Lannie at 'yung isa naman ay Tropical Depression Maring," PAGASA administrator Vicente Malano said in a televised press briefing.

At 4 p.m., "Lannie's" eye was traced 1,380 kilometers east of Appari while "Maring's" eye was located 300 km east of Infanta, Quezon.

"Lannie" packs maximum sustained winds of up to 120 kph and gustiness of up to 120 kph. On the other hand, "Maring" packs maximum sustained winds of up to 45kph and gustiness of up to 60kph.

Due to this development, Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 1 was raised in some areas. The following provinces were placed under Signal No. 1:

  • Catanduanes

  • Camarines Norte

  • Camarines Sur

  • Quezon including Polilio Island

  • Aurora

  • Quirino

  • Nueva Ecija

Malano explained that "Maring" entered the PAR first at 3 p.m. However, "Lannie" with international name "Talim" was listed first in the tropical cyclone system.

"Naunang binigyan ng pangalan si Lannie dahil nauna siyang naging tropical cyclone," Malano said.

PAGASA forecast that "Maring" and "Lannie" would exit PAR by Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.

"Maring" currently moves 13 kph west-northwest while "Lannie" in the same direction at 28 kph.
