The super typhoon packed gustiness of up to 305 kph and maximum sustained winds of 225 kph but will only be bringing moderate rains to the province, according to the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) in Bohol.
Lawin is expected to make landfall between in Northern Luzon 11 p.m. on Wednesday and 2 a.m. on Thursday.
However, PAGASA still cautioned Bohol residents, particularly those with small fishing boats on possible strong currents caused by the Southwest Monsoon.
Personnel of the Philippine Cost Guard are also on alert to respond to any changes in weather conditions. So far, there have been no cancellation of trips of passenger boats in ports across Bohol.
Lawin is the 12th typhoon to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility this year
According to PAGASA, two more storms are expected to follow this month.Â (Allen Doydora)
