MANILA, Philippines – More areas have been placed under public storm warning signal no. 1 as Tropical Storm Egay (international name Linfa) slowed down and slightly intensified on Friday afternoon, July 3. 

As of 4 pm Friday, the center of Egay was located at 445 kilometers east of Baler, Aurora. It has maximum sustained winds of 75 km/h near the center, and gustiness of up to 90 km/h. Moderate to occasionally heavy rainfall is expected within its 400-km diameter. 

The tropical storm has slowed down as it moves closer to Northern Luzon at 10 km/h. It is moving west northwest in direction.

Signal No. 1 is now raised over these areas.

"Fisher folk and small sea crafts are advised not to venture out over the eastern seaboard of Central Luzon, seaboards of Southern Luzon and Visayas and the northern seaboard of Mindanao," state weather bureau PAGASA said in its Friday, 5 pm bulletin. 

Residents living in low-lying and mountainous areas in Bicol Region and Samar provinces should stay alert against possible flashfloods and landslides.

The next bulletin on Egay will be issued at 11 pm Friday. – Rappler.com
