Tropical Depression Tino begins to move away from PH
MANILA, Philippines – Tropical Depression Tino began to move away from the Philippines late Friday night, November 17, after making landfall in Palawan late afternoon.
In a bulletin issued 11 pm on Friday, state weather bureau PAGASA said Tino is already 190 kilometers west northwest of Puerto Princesa, Palawan, still moving west northwest at a relatively fast 28 kilometers per hour (km/h).
Tino has maximum winds of 55 km/h and gustiness of up to 80 km/h. (READ: EXPLAINER: How tropical cyclones form)
Since the tropical depression is already moving away, Palawan is no longer under signal number 1.
But there will still be light to moderate rain in Mimaropa, Bicol, and the Visayas. (READ: FAST FACTS: Tropical cyclones, rainfall advisories)
