MANILA – The low pressure area that crossed the southern Philippines has intensified into a tropical depression on Friday, as it made its way out of the country, state weather bureau PAGASA said.

Storm signal number 1 was raised in Palawan, where Tropical Depression Tino was forecast to hit land in the southern portion of the island from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., PAGASA said.

Residents of the Mimaropa, Bicol, Eastern Visayas, Caraga and Panay regions were alerted against possible flashfloods and landslides, PAGASA said.

At 10:00 AM, the center of ‘Tino’ was spotted 245 kilometers east southeast of Puerto Princesa City, with maximum sustained winds of 55 kph near the center and 80 kph gusts, PAGASA said.

It is forecast to move west northwest at 28 kph, and exit the Philippine area of responsibility by Saturday morning, it said.
