After making a landfall in Casiguran, Aurora around 9:30 AM Wednesday, Tropical Storm Juaning was upgraded to a "severe tropical storm" with maximum sustained winds rising from 85 to 95 kilometers per hour.
Rains in Metro Manila, though, may be less compared to the amount of rainfall we experienced yesterday because the concentration of rain is in the southwest part of the storm.
However, Metro Manila still remains under Storm Signal No. 2 together with 21 other provinces. They are Aurora, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Abra, Kalinga, Ilocos Sur, Mt. Province, Isabela, La Union, Benguet, Ifugao, Pangasinan, Zambales, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija, Pampanga, Bataan, Bulacan, Rizal, Quezon, and Polillo Island.
Areas under Storm Signal No. 1 are Ilocos Norte, Apayao, Cagayan, Cavite, Batangas, Laguna, Mindoro Provinces, Lubang Island, Marinduque, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay, and Burias Island.
Flashfloods and landslides are possible so people in low lying and mountainous areas under storm signals 1 and 2 are advised to evacuate. People living in coastal areas are also alerted for possible big waves brought by the storm.
