Signal No.1 raised
over Neg. Occ.
BY CARLA GOMEZ
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) yesterday raised storm signal number one over Negros Occidental as tropical depression Seniang approached.
But Melvin Fierro Sr. of the Negros Occidental Provincial Disaster Team said Seniang could still change course and a more accurate projection on whether the province will be hit is more likely to be known today.

|A surprising irony|
|What is it?|
Negros Oriental and Occidental are among the 23 areas in the Visayas and Mindanao that are now under public storm warning signal no. 1 as tropical depression “Seniang” slightly gained strength and continues to move closer towards northeastern Mindanao.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration, in its 8 o'clock bulletin last night, said that signal No. 1, or winds of 30-60 kph expected in at least 36 hours, is hoisted over Negros Oriental, Negros Occidental, Siquijor, Cebu, Bohol, Leyte, Southern Leyte, and Camotes Island in the Visayas..
