DOKSURI (DINDO) is expected to continue moving west-northwestward through 48 hours before taking a slight northwesterly track by 72 hours. On the forecast track, the core of Doksuri will pass near the Northeastern Coast of Cagayan between 7-8 PM on Thursday and move very close to Calayan Island around midnight Friday, before exiting into West Philippine Sea. The storm will pass very close approximately 14 km to the NE of Hong Kong Harbour on Saturday afternoon.

Maximum Sustained Winds (1-min. avg) remain near 65 km/hr (35 knots) with higher gusts. Continued increase in strength will be expected as the system moves across Balintang Channel and into the West Philippine Sea. DOKSURI will start losing strength prior in making landfall over Guangdong Province, Southern China on Friday.

Tropical Storm Force Winds (62-85 km/hr) extend outward up to 55 kilometers (30 nautical miles) from the center. DOKSURI is a large-sized tropical cyclone with a diameter of 890 kilometers (480 nautical miles).

SATURDAY AFTERNOON: Just along the coast of Guangdong Province, Southern China...about 14 km NE of Hong Kong Harbour...weakening [2PM JUN 30: 22.2N 114.6E @ 85kph].

COASTAL STORM SURGE FLOODING - possible 1-3 ft [0.3-0.9 m] above normal tide levels...accompanied by large and dangerous battering waves can be expected along the coastal, inland lakes and beach front areas of Eastern Visayas, Bicol Region and Eastern Luzon.
