PAGASA says Severe Tropical Storm Paeng (Nalgae) would be closest to Metro Manila between 5 pm and 11 pm on Saturday, October 29

MANILA, Philippines – Severe Tropical Storm Paeng (Nalgae) made its fifth landfall in Sariaya, Quezon, at 1:40 pm on Saturday, October 29, then proceeded to cross Laguna.

Paeng was earlier expected to make its fifth landfall in San Juan, Batangas, which is adjacent to Sariaya.

The severe tropical storm’s first four landfalls were also on Saturday, in the following areas:

  • Virac, Catanduanes – 1:10 am
  • Caramoan, Camarines Sur – 1:40 am
  • Buenavista, Quezon – 6 am
  • Santa Cruz, Marinduque – 8:40 am

By 4 pm, Paeng was already in the vicinity of San Pablo City, Laguna, moving northwest at a slightly faster 20 kilometers per hour from the previous 15 km/h.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said in a briefing past 5 pm that the severe tropical storm is expected to cross the Cavite-Batangas area, then the southern part of Bataan for the rest of Saturday.

PAGASA Senior Weather Specialist Raymond Ordinario said Paeng would be closest to Metro Manila between 5 pm and 11 pm on Saturday.

So far, Paeng still has maximum sustained winds of 95 km/h, with gustiness of up to 160 km/h. It is now seen to maintain its strength while crossing Southern Luzon, instead of weakening into a tropical storm.

PAGASA added that Paeng may intensify once it emerges over the West Philippine Sea.

The weather bureau warned that rain will persist until Sunday, October 30. Floods and landslides can still occur.
