Karding (Noru) hits Burdeos, Quezon, as a super typhoon and Dingalan, Aurora, as a typhoon on Sunday, September 25

MANILA, Philippines – Karding (Noru) made its first landfall in Burdeos, Quezon, as a super typhoon at 5:30 pm on Sunday, September 25, then made its second landfall in Dingalan, Aurora, as a typhoon at 8:20 pm.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) earlier said in its 8 pm bulletin on Sunday that Karding slightly weakened after its first landfall, with its maximum sustained winds decreasing from 195 km/h to 185 km/h.

It was expected to continue weakening after that, though still remaining within typhoon category.

A typhoon has maximum sustained winds ranging from 118 to 184 km/h, while a super typhoon has maximum sustained winds of 185 km/h and above.

PAGASA also earlier said Karding continued to move west at 20 kilometers per hour (km/h).

It will cross Central Luzon for the rest of Sunday, then emerge over the West Philippine Sea via the coastal waters of Zambales or Pangasinan early Monday morning, September 26.

Rain from Karding is seen to continue until early Monday afternoon. Widespread floods and landslides are expected.

Meanwhile, storm surge warnings remain in effect:

High to very high risk of storm surges

More than 3 meters high

  • northern Quezon including Polillo Islands
  • Aurora
Moderate to high risk of storm surges
  • Camarines Norte
  • Pangasinan
  • Zambales
  • Bulacan
  • northern part of Metro Manila
  • southern part of La Union
  • rest of Quezon

PAGASA warned that the combined effects of storm surges and high waves breaking along the coast may cause “life-threatening and damaging” floods.

A gale warning remains in place for the following seaboards:

Very rough to phenomenal seas

Waves 10.3 to 14.1 meters high

  • eastern seaboard of Central Luzon and Southern Luzon (Aurora, eastern coast of Quezon including Polillo, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Catanduanes)
Rough to very rough seas

Waves 2.8 to 4.5 meters high

  • eastern and western seaboards of Northern Luzon (Cagayan, La Union, Pangasinan, Isabela)
  • western seaboard of Central Luzon and Southern Luzon, as well as southern seaboard of Southern Luzon (Zambales, Bataan, Metro Manila, Cavite, Batangas, Romblon, Marinduque, Oriental Mindoro, Occidental Mindoro, southwestern coast of Camarines Sur, southern coast of Quezon)

Such conditions are risky for all vessels.

Karding is projected to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Monday.

Karding is the Philippines’ 11th tropical cyclone for 2022.

It is also the third tropical cyclone for September, after Typhoon Inday (Muifa) and Super Typhoon Josie (Nanmadol). Inday and Josie did not make landfall in the country.

PAGASA expects 7 to 11 tropical cyclones to enter or develop inside PAR from September 2022 to February 2023. Per month, these are the weather bureau’s estimates:

  • September 2022 – 2 or 3
  • October 2022 – 2 to 4
  • November 2022 – 2 or 3
  • December 2022 – 1 or 2
  • January 2023 – 0 or 1
  • February 2023 – 0 or 1
