Typhoon Juaning in Marinduque

"Juaning" battering Amoingon beach.

There was continuous rain that started early evening of Monday and rough coastal waters battered the shores until late afternoon of Tuesday. Typhoon Signal No. 1 was hoisted over Marinduque but it seemed that the gusty winds and rains of Typhoon Juaning was the one most felt on this island-province, compared to the many typhoons that visited the country in recent months. Damage to crops, however, appeared minimal.

As of 4 p.m. yesterday PAGASA said Juaning was located at 50 km northeast of Daet, Camarines Norte, packing maximum winds of 75 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 90 kph. Today, the rain has stopped and PAGASA said it expects Juaning to exit Philippine territory this afternoon.
