MANILA, Philippines —  Typhoon “Odette” further weakened on Thursday evening after it made its seventh landfall in Carcar, Cebu, said the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration’s (Pagasa).


In Pagasa’s latest storm advisory, the eye or the center of Odette is now located within the vicinity of Carcar, Cebu, as of 10:00 p.m.

After slightly weakening, it now carries maximum sustained winds of 175 km per hour (kph) and gusts of up to 240 kph, while moving westward at 35 kph.


According to Pagasa, Odette is forecast to continue moving westward where it will traverse Negros Island and pass over the Panay Gulf before emerging over the Sulu Sea on Thursday morning. It will then cross the northern or central portion of Palawan in the afternoon before emerging over the West Philippine Sea.

“Odette may still see some slight weakening as it crosses the western portion of Visayas and mainland Palawan, but it is forecast to remain as a typhoon,” said Pagasa in its advisory.

“Re-intensification is likely once Odette emerges over the West Philippine Sea. However, continuous weakening may ensue beginning Sunday as the typhoon becomes exposed to increasing vertical wind shear and the surge of the Northeast Monsoon,” it added.
