Tropical depression “Nando” has fizzled into a low pressure area (LPA) as it begins to merge with tropical storm “Maring” (international “Kompasu”), the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said in its 11 p.m. bulletin on Saturday, Oct. 9.

“The circulation of the remnant low will likely be fully assimilated within the circulation of tropical storm Maring in the next 12 hours,” PAGASA said.

The LPA was last spotted at 1,105 kilometers (km) east of northern Luzon at around 10 p.m.

It was moving southwestward at 25 kilometers per hour (kph).

Meanwhile, the center of tropical storm Maring was estimated at 670 km east of Virac, Catanduanes.

It has maintained its maximum sustained winds of 85 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 105 kph while moving north-northwestward at 30 kph.

Due to the anticipated direct effect of Maring, PAGASA has raised tropical cyclone wind signal number 1 over Eastern Samar, eastern portion of Northern Samar, Dinagat Islands, and Surigao del Norte.

Based on the latest forecast track, tropical storm Maring will likely traverse the Luzon Strait and pass close or over the Babuyan Islands between Monday evening, Oct. 11, and Tuesday morning, Oct. 12.

However, PAGASA has not discounted the possibility of a landfall over mainland Luzon.
