MANILA, Philippines – PAGASA is now monitoring a typhoon 1,120 kilometers east of Casiguran, Aurora.
Around eight in the morning, the former low-pressure area became a tropical depression and was named “Perla,” according to the weather bureau today at eleven o’clock.
There is a force of 45 kilometers per hour near the center and a typhoon of up to 55 kilometers per hour.
It is said to be moving in a northwest direction at a speed of 20 kilometers per hour.
There are no tropical cyclone wind signals in any part of the country at this time, but it is expected to weather in the northern part of the country before the weekend ends.
“[M] can bring ‘bad weather’ to Batanes, Cagayan (along the Babuyan Islands) and Apayao from Friday night to Saturday morning,” said PAGASA.
Sailing is particularly dangerous on small maritime vessels in the northern and western seaboards of Northern Luzon due to northeasterly surface windflow.
