Tropical storm “Carina” (international name “Nida”) remains a threat to extreme northern Luzon even as it moves out of the Philippine area of responsibility on its way to Hong Kong and southern China.

In its 5:00 AM update for August 1, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration reported that the eye of tropical storm “Nida” is at 145 km North Northwest of Laoag City, Ilocos Norte (19.5°N, 120.0°E). The cyclone now carries maximum sustained winds of up to 105 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 135 kph. It is moving northwest at 20 kph and is projected to be 635 km west of Itbayat, Batanes by Tuesday morning.
