In anticipation of torrential rains and possible flash floods caused by typhoon “Ineng” (international name: Goni) and the enhanced southwest monsoon or habagat, some local government units have already announced class suspensions for tomorrow, August 22.

According to the 11PM storm bulletin issued by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), “Ineng” carries maximum sustained winds of 160 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 195 kph. It is moving north northeast at 11 kilometers per hour.

It is projected to be just 70 kilometers east of Basco, Batanes. It is expected to cross Balintang Channel before proceeding to Taiwan and Japan. It will be outside the Philippine area of responsibility by Monday morning.
