MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – Tropical Storm Egay (international name Linfa) has left the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), said the country’s state weather bureau on Tuesday, July 7.
All Public Storm Warning Signals have been lifted, according to the 9:30 am bulletin of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
However, flashfloods and landslides may still occur in Zambales, Bataan, Pangasinan, Benguet, and the Ilocos region due to moderate to heavy rains brought by the Southwest Monsoon.
