TROPICAL STORM WARNING

A tropical storm 03W (not named yet) is currently located approximately 300 nautical miles East of Samar, and is forecast to move generally northwest towards northern Luzon. This weather system is expected to significantly increase in intensity within the next 48 hours before hitting the Philippine coast in the North of Luzon Island on Monday morning. We advise you to take all precautions now to secure vessels and property.


DEP 03W 2011-05-06 09:30 UT 11.5N 128.4E 030 kts


If you intend to travel and/or dive in the northern Philippines soon, it is highly recommended that you keep track of this weather system during the next 24 hours, to see if it continues on its forecast track.
