MANILA, Philippines — The low-pressure area spotted northeast of Itbayat, Batanes has intensified into Tropical Depression Gorio, the state weather service reported on Wednesday.

“At 8:00 AM today, the low-pressure area Northeast of Itbayat, Batanes developed into Tropical Depression #GorioPH,” the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in a Twitter post.


Pagasa said it will later issue a tropical cyclone advisory.

Gorio is the seventh tropical cyclone to enter this country this year, according to Pagasa.

Earlier, Pagasa said the now-tropical cyclone continues to enhance the southwest monsoon or habagat, which is expected to dump rain in Metro Manila and many parts of Luzon.
