Though it is no longer a super typhoon, Karding (Noru) remains a powerful tropical cyclone and still poses a threat to much of Luzon

MANILA, Philippines – After hitting Quezon and Aurora, Typhoon Karding (Noru) was crossing Nueva Ecija late Sunday evening, September 25.

Karding, previously a super typhoon, was downgraded to a typhoon after its first landfall in Burdeos, Quezon, at 5:30 pm. By the time it made its second landfall in Dingalan, Aurora, at 8:20 pm, it had already been downgraded.

Though it has weakened a bit, Karding remains a powerful tropical cyclone and still poses a threat to much of Luzon.

The typhoon was last spotted in the vicinity of San Leonardo, Nueva Ecija, moving west northwest at 20 kilometers per hour (km/h).

In its 11 pm bulletin on Sunday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Karding will continue to cross Central Luzon in the coming hours, before emerging over the West Philippine Sea via the coastal waters of Zambales or Pangasinan early Monday morning, September 26.

Its maximum sustained winds have gone down to 175 km/h, with gustiness of up to 215 km/h. At its peak, Karding had maximum sustained winds of 195 km/h.

PAGASA expects Karding to remain a typhoon even as it weakens while crossing landmass. It may re-intensify once it is over the West Philippine Sea.

There are no more areas under Signal No. 5 since Karding has been downgraded to a typhoon. But Signal Nos. 1 to 4 remain in effect.

There is still a moderate to high risk of storm surges in the following areas due to Karding:

  • Pangasinan
  • Zambales
  • Bulacan
  • northern part of Metro Manila
  • southern part of La Union
  • Aurora
  • northern part 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 evening.

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
