Heavy rains is expected along these areas and winds of minimal Tropical Depression strength (at least 55 kph) shall occur. Please be alert against flashfloods and landslides. Moderate to rough sea waves are expected along the western seaboards of Luzon as TD DODONG lingers out over the South China Sea.
