MANILA, Philippines – Typhoon Maymay (Jebi) left the Philippine responsibility zone (PAR) before dawn on Monday, September 3, just a few hours after entering.

In a bulletin released on Monday at five o'clock in the morning, the Philippine administration for atmospheric, geophysical and astronomical services (PAGASA) said Maymay was already 1340 kilometers northeast of Basco, Batanes, at 20 kilometers per hour (km / hour) in a north-westerly direction.

The typhoon had entered PAR on Sunday 2 September at 2 pm. But he only remained close to the PAR border and did not land in the Philippines, so no areas were placed under warning signs of tropical cyclone.

Maymay's trough or extension only brought scattered rain showers and thunderstorms to Calabarzon, Bicol, Mimaropa, Caraga, Northern Mindanao and the Visayas.

When leaving PAR, the typhoon weakened. It now has a maximum wind speed of 180 km / h from the previous 190 km / h and a speed of 220 km / h from the previous 235 km / h.

Maymay was the 13th tropical cyclone of the Philippines for 2018. On average, the country receives an average of 20 tropical cyclones per year. (READ: LIST: PAGASA & # 39; s names for tropical cyclones in 2018)

While Maymay has left, PAGASA follows the consequences of the southwest monsoon or hanging habagat.

Light to heavy rain showers are experienced in Metro Manila, Pangasinan, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Bicol and the Zamboanga peninsula.

Residents of these areas should watch out for sudden floods and landslides. (READ: QUICK FACTS: tropical cyclones, rain advices)

The rest of the country, unaffected by the southwestern monsoon, will only have local thunderstorms.

PAGASA declared the start of the rainy season last June 8th. – Rappler.com
