What to expect

Heavy rainfall

  • Jolina is expected to bring heavy to intense with at times torrential rains over Northern Samar, Eastern Samar, Samar, Leyte, Biliran, Sorsogon, Albay, Romblon and Masbate in the next 24 hours.
  • Meanwhile, moderate to heavy with at times intense rains are also likely over the southern portion of Quezon, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque and the rest of Bicol region and Visayas.
  • PAGASA said scattered to widespread flooding (including flash floods) and rain-induced landslides are possible under these conditions.

Severe winds

  • Destructive typhoon-force winds are likely to occur within any of the areas where Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 3 is in effect. PAGASA said this may bring generally moderate to heavy damage to structures and vegetation.
  • Meanwhile, damaging gale-force to storm-force winds are likely to occur within any of the areas where TCWS No. 2 is hoisted. This may bring generally light to moderate damage to structures and vegetation.
  • Residents of areas under TCWS No. 1 will experience strong winds (strong breeze to near gale conditions). This may lead to very light damage to structures and vegetation.

Coastal inundation

  • PAGASA warned the threat of coastal inundation due to storm surge of up to 0.5 to 1 meter will continue in several coastal localities of Biliran, Sorsogon, Samar and Masbate in the next 24 hours.
  • Coastal areas of localities under TCWS may experience coastal flooding due to hazardous surf conditions.

Jolina is forecast to make landfall in the vicinity of Masbate within the next 12 hours.

Then, it will head northwest toward Burias Island and the vicinity of Ragay Gulf before making another landfall in the vicinity of southeastern Quezon tonight or early Wednesday morning. Prolonged interaction with land may result in its weakening into a severe tropical storm.
