Philippines Report February 19, 2021 News No Comments on ‘Auring’ weakens into tropical storm

Tropical cyclone “Auring” weakened into a tropical storm hours after it became a severe tropical storm, state weather bureau PAGASA said Friday in its 5 p.m. bulletin.

PAGASA, however, warns that Auring may intensify again into a severe tropical storm ahead of its expected landfall over the eastern coast of Caraga region on Sunday morning.

Afterwards, PAGASA said Auring will likely weaken as it follows a generally northwestward path while crossing the Caraga region, Visayas and Mimaropa from Sunday to Monday.

Auring now packs winds of up to 85 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gusts of up to 105 kph and is moving westward at 15 kph.

PAGASA last spotted its center 405 kilometers east southeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.

While Auring has yet to make landfall, its effects are already being felt in Caraga, Camiguin, Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon, Davao Oriental, Davao de Oro and Davao del Norte where light to moderate with at times heavy rains are expected until tonight.
