Lannie, Maring out of PAR as early as Wednesday afternoon, says Pagasa
Typhoon Lannie (international name: Talim) and Tropical Storm Maring (international name: Doksuri) are expected to exit the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR)on Wednesday late afternoon or early evening, the state weather bureau said.
Weather forecaster Nico Peñaranda said in a briefing that sea travel remained risky over the western section of Central and Southern Luzon as Maring intensified at sea while on its way out of PAR.
Maring was last spotted 370 kilometers west of Iba, Zambales, with maximum sustained winds of 85 kilometers per hour (kph) and gusts of up to 105 kph, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).
It slightly accelerated at 18 kph west northwest.
Palawan, Occidental Mindoro, Zambales, Bataan and Batangas will have scattered light to moderate rainshowers and occasional thunderstorms.
Maring swamped parts of Calabarzon, National Capita Region and Central Luzon with its heavy rains, prompting the suspension of government work and classes, as well as cancellation of several domestic flights.
Typhoon Lannie, meanwhile, has changed its track and was heading towards Ryukyu Islands in Japan instead of Taiwan, Peñaranda said.
Lannie was last sighted 605 kilometers northeast of Basco, Batanes. /idl
