Typhoon "Tisoy" (international name Kammuri) maintained its strength it moved west toward Mindoro.

In its 8 a.m. severe weather update Tuesday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Tisoy's eyewall was bringing violent winds and heavy to intense rainfall over southern Quezon, Marinduque, and Romblon.

This eyewall is forecast to affect the provinces of Cavite, Batangas and the northern portion of Mindoro within three hours.

The eye is expected to make landfall or pass close to Marinduque-Simara Island-Banton Island area before noon.

On Tuesday, Bicol Region, Romblon, Marinduque, Mindoro provinces, Calabarzon, Metro Manila, Bataan, Pampanga and Bulacan will experience frequent to continuous heavy to intense rains.

Occasional to frequent heavy rains is expected over the rest of Central Luzon. Intermittent heavy rains over Samar provinces, Biliran, Aklan, Antique, Capiz, Iloilo, Guimaras, and the northern portions of Negros provinces and Cebu.

The forecast storm surge of 2-3 meters over several coastal areas in Batangas, Mindoro provinces, Marinduque, Romblon, Ticao and Burias Islands, and the southern coast of Southern Quezon; 1-2 meters over Camarines Norte, northern coast of Southern Quezon, Cavite, Metro Manila, Bulacan, Pampanga, Bataan, and Zambales (Subic Bay coastal areas).

Tropical Cyclone Wind Signals (TCWS) hoisted over Bohol, Siquijor, southern Leyte, and the rest of Cebu, Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental are now lifted.

Sea travel is risky, especially for small seacrafts, over the seaboards of areas under TCWS, the seaboards of northern Luzon, the western seaboard of Palawan, and the northern and eastern seaboards of Mindanao due to rough sea conditions.

At 7 a.m., the eye of Tisoy was located in the coastal waters of San Francisco, Quezon and moving west at 20 kilometers per hour. It has maximum sustained winds of 155 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 235 kph.
