Typhoon “Rolly” (international name “Goni”) will likely make its first landfall over Catanduanes then on to its second landfall over Camarines Norte and Camarines Sur this morning, according to a weather specialist of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

PAGASA’s Benison Estareja said Rolly will likely maintain its maximum sustained winds of 215 kilometers per hour (kph) and gustiness of up to 265 kph when it makes landfall over Catanduanes between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., and over Camarines Norte-Camarines Sur between 5 a.m. and 8 a.m.

From morning until noon, Rolly may traverse Camarines Norte and Camarines Norte and southern Quezon. 

It will approach CALABARZON region (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) and may affect Romblon, Marinduque, Oriental Mindoro, and Occidental Mindoro until afternoon.

By 8 p.m., Estareja said Rolly will likely be in the vicinity of Tanauan City, Batangas. This is also the time of its closest approach to Metro Manila, and parts of Rizal, Bulacan, and Pampanga.

It will move between Cavite and Bataan on its way to the West Philippine Sea by early Monday morning, he said.
