The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has removed tropical cyclone wind signal No. 4 as Karding continues to weaken after making landfall.

“Si bagyong Karding ay humina habang ito ay dumaan sa kalupaan sa may Central Luzon,” weather forecaster Aldczar Aurelio reported Monday morning., adding that as of 4 a.m., its center was located over the coastal waters of Santa Cruz, Zambales.

He said it is moving west northwest at 30 kilometers per hour (kph) with maximum winds of 140 kph and gustiness of about 170 kph. “Bumilis ang kanyang paggalaw kumpara kagabi na nasa 20 kph.”

On the other hand, the southwest monsoon is still having an impact on Western Mindanao, the Visayas, and Southern Luzon, causing cloudy skies and rain.

“Wala nang nakataas na Signal No. 4,” he added.

In Palawan, the PDRRMO chief Jeremias Alili reported that no untoward incident at the height of Karding was recorded by the Emergency Operations Center.

“No reported untoward incident. No flooding/landslide. This morning, generally cloudy all over Palawan with scattered light rain per monitoring. EOC will continue monitoring and maintain red alert level,” Alili said.
