Pagasa says typhoon Odette leaves PH area of responsibility

MANILA, Philippines — Typhoon Odette (international name: Rai), after leaving a trail of destruction in many parts of the country, finally exited the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) on Saturday afternoon, the state weather bureau reported.

Odette left PAR at around 12:40 p.m., according to the latest advisory of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

Pagasa said a slight re-intensification may take place as the typhoon moves over the West Philippine Sea.

“However, the eventual exposure of the typhoon to increasing vertical wind shear and the surge of the northeast monsoon will result in a weakening trend beginning tomorrow,” Pagasa said.

“Odette” has left 14 dead in Visayas and Mindanao, according to the Office of the Civil Defense.
