MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has debunked posts circulating online claiming that a “super typhoon” named “Maria” would hit the country.

PAGASA weather forecasting section chief Roberto Sawi, in a statement on Sunday night, said no tropical cyclones are expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility and affect the country’s landmass within the next three to five days.

Sawi urged the public to rely only on official information released by the agency via its website, bagong.pagasa.dost.gov.ph; Facebook, Dost_pagasa; Twitter, @dost_pagasa and YouTube, DOST-PAGASA WEATHER REPORT.

Meanwhile, PAGASA said the southwest monsoon would continue to bring moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over Ilocos region, Zambales and Bataan in the next 24 hours.

Light to moderate with at times heavy rains will prevail over Metro Manila, Abra, Benguet, Tarlac, Pampanga, Bulacan, Cavite, Batangas and Occidental Mindoro.

The southwest monsoon, which was enhanced by Typhoon Fabian and another storm outside the Philippine area of responsibility, dumped heavy rains, inundating many parts of the country, including Metro Manila, last week.

Fabian (In-fa) left the country last Saturday.
