Tropical Depression (TD) Vicky continued to dump rains in parts of Luzon as it made its second landfall in Puerto Princesa in Palawan on Saturday night, the weather bureau said.

In its 11 p.m. bulletin on Saturday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Vicky was last seen 80 kilometers northwest of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan, moving northwestward at 25 kph.

The TD now packs a maximum sustained winds of 55 kph near the center, and gustiness of up to 85 kph.

Moderate to heavy, with at times intense rains will prevail over mainland Cagayan Valley, Apayao, Kalinga, Mountain Province, Ifugao, Aurora, Quezon, Bicol Region, and the northern portion of Palawan, including Calamian and Kalayaan Islands. 

Light to moderate with at times heavy rains will be experienced over Babuyan Islands, the rest of Cordillera Administrative Region, Bulacan, Metro Manila, the rest of Calabarzon, and the rest of Mimaropa.

Tropical cyclone wind signal (TCWS) no. 1 is still hoisted over the northern and central portions of Palawan (Araceli, Dumaran, Taytay, El Nido, San Vicente, Roxas, Puerto Princesa City, Aborlan, Narra, Quezon, Sofronio Espanola) including Calamian, Cuyo, and Kalayaan Islands that will experience strong breeze to near gale conditions and rough seas.

The northeast monsoon will also cause gusty conditions over most parts of Luzon, especially in coastal and mountainous areas.

Rough to very rough seas is expected over the entire seaboards of northern Luzon, the entire seaboards of central Luzon, the eastern seaboard of Quezon, including Polillo Islands, the seaboard of Camarines Norte, the northern seaboard of Camarines Sur, and the northern and eastern seaboards of Catanduanes. SOVEREIGNPH
