Tisoy made landfall over Marinduque at around 8:30 this morning.

Dr. Zeaphard Caelian, head of the Provincial Disaster Management Program Division, told DNX people should beware still of the possible strong winds and heavy rains Typhoon Tisoy could bring.

“Officially it is not out of the country yet,” Caelian said.

In other areas previously covered Storm Signal No. 2, disaster officials reported less disastrous weather conditions.
