MANILA, Philippines — Several trips were canceled on Wednesday due to heavy rains brought by Tropical Depression Ramil.

Citing a report from the local Philippine Coast Guard, National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council spokesperson Mina Marasigan said that all trips going to, and from, the Batangas port has been canceled as of Wednesday afternoon.

Marasigan asked the public to "coordinate with their land and sea transport services for possible suspensions" also to avoid stranded passengers in the port area.

The Manila International Airport Authority, meanwhile, announced the cancelation of the following flights due to bad weather:

  • Cebu Pacific 5J 821/822, Manila to Virac, Catanduanes to Manila
  • Cebu Pacific 5J 506/507, Manila to Tuguegarao to Manila
  • Cebu Pacific 5J 506/507, Manila to Tuguegarao to Manila
  • Philippine Airlines Express 2014/2015 Manila to Tuguegarao to Manila

PAG-ASA, in its 2:00 p.m. weather bulletin, located Tropical Depression Ramil at the vicinity of Cuyo Islands. Storm Signal No. 1 is currently hoisted over northern Palawan, including Calamian Group of Islands, southern Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro and Semirara Islands (Antique).

The state weather bureau warned of sea travel areas placed under Signal No. 1, as well as the seaboards of northern Luzon and the eastern seaboard of central and southern Luzon due to the tropical depression and the surge of the northeast monsoon.

Tropical Depression Ramil is expected to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Thursday evening or early morning of Friday.
