PAGASA has issued Public Storm Signal Warning No.1 to the Batanes Group of Islands, Cagayan Province including Babuyan Island, and Calayan Group of Islands. Residents in the storm warning areas and nearby provinces are advised to be on alert for possible landslides and flashfloods due to the big possibility of moderate to heavy thunderstorms in the eastern of the country.  As of 4:00 am today, Bagyong Henry was tracked to be 340 km Northeast of Virac, Catanduanes.  Fisherfolks in the eastern seaboard of the country are advised not to venture out.

Cebu Outlook: Typhoon Henry enhances the Southwest Moonsoon or Habagat bringing breezy conditions with cloudy skies and occasional rainshowers in Cebu and nearby islands including Mindanao.
