Tropical Depression Santi, which is actually now Tropical Storm Santi, is moving closer, with its center now located 370 km East of Baler, Aurora at 1:00 AM today, October 11, based on the hourly update provided by PAGASA.

That's 40-km closer than what PAGASA provided in its 11PM update Thursday, October 10, stating that at 10PM, the center of Tropical Depression Santi was estimated at 410 km East of Baler, Aurora, with maximum sustained winds of 105 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 135 kph.

More areas are now under public storm warning signals. It's now Signal #2 in:

Isabela
Aurora
Northern Quezon including Polilio Islands

While Signal #1 has now been raised in Metro Manila, as well as in the following areas:

Abra
Benguet
Ifugao
Kalinga
Mountain Province 
Ilocos Sur
La Union
Pangasinan
Nueva Vizcaya
Quirino
Southern Cagayan
Bataan
Bulacan
Nueva Ecija
Pampanga
Tarlac
Zambales
Cavite
Laguna
Rest of Quezon Province
Rizal
Camarines Sur
Camarines Norte
Catanduanes

For areas with Signal Number 1, it's automatic that no classes in the pre-school, while for Signal #2, classes are suspended in pre-school, elementary and high school.
Expect a rainy Friday everyone and keep safe.

And I just hope that it doesn't get worse. Why? It's now the finals week for most of those in the college level and the students are now excited for their semestral break.

If the situation gets worse, it will delay the finals and of course, the sem break. So let's hope Santi gets weaker and leaves ASAP!!!
