MANILA – In a bulletin issued 8 am on Saturday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the LPA that used to be Usman is now in the vicinity of Llorente, Eastern Samar. 
It weakened after making landfall in Borongan, Eastern Samar, at 6 am on Saturday, December 29.
There are no more areas under tropical cyclone warning signals but may still trigger moderate to heavy rain in Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Bicol, and Aurora, while light to heavy rain in Metro Manila, the rest of Central Luzon, and the Visayas.
PAGASA said residents should remain on alert for flash floods and landslides, especially in low-lying communities and in mountainous areas.
Sea travel remains risky in the seaboards of Northern Luzon and Central Luzon, the eastern and western seaboards of Southern Luzon, and the eastern seaboard of the Visayas due to the surge of the northeast monsoon.

Usman was the 21st and last tropical cyclone to enter the Philippines for 2018.
