MANILA, Philippines – Tropical Storm Domeng (Maliksi) maintained its strength on Friday afternoon, June 8, as it continued to enhance the southwest monsoon.

In a bulletin released 5 pm on Friday, state weather bureau PAGASA said Domeng is now located 560 kilometers east of Aparri, Cagayan, moving north northeast at a slightly faster 19 kilometers per hour (km/h) from the previous 17 km/h. Due to its direction, it is not expected to make landfall in any part of the Philippines.

The tropical storm continues to have maximum winds of 65km/h near the center and gustiness of up to 80 km/h.

There are no areas under tropical cyclone warning signals, but Domeng is enhancing the southwest monsoon or hanging habagat.

Domeng and the southwest monsoon combined will bring moderate to heavy rain to the regions of Metro Manila, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Bicol, and Western Visayas, as well as the provinces of Aurora, Bataan, and Zambales. Residents of these areas should watch out for possible flash floods and landslides.

The rest of Luzon and the rest of the Visayas will also have light to moderate rain due to the southwest monsoon. Floods are possible in low-lying areas. (READ: FAST FACTS: Tropical cyclones, rainfall advisories)

PAGASA warned that sea travel is risky in the eastern and western seaboards of Luzon, as well as in the eastern seaboard of the Visayas.

Based on its latest forecast track, Domeng is expected to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Sunday, June 10.
