Egay’s center is located  350 kilometers east of Tuguegarao City, Cagayan, packing maximum sustained winds of 175 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 215 kph, according to Pagasa.

Pagasa said this typhoon will become a super typhoon on Tuesday and is seen to make landfall or pass very close to Babuyan Islands-northeastern mainland Cagayan area.


“On the track forecast, this typhoon is forecast to make landfall or pass very close to Babuyan Islands-northeastern mainland Cagayan area between late evening today and tomorrow afternoon,” Pagasa said.

“Egay is forecast to continue intensifying and reach super typhoon category within 12 hours, although the window of intensification for this typhoon is closing,” it added.

After this, Egay is seen to weaken, according to Pagasa.

“A weakening trend may begin as the typhoon passes over the Babuyan Islands due to the potential onset of eyewall replacement cycle and interaction with the rugged terrain of Northern Luzon,” the state weather bureau said.

“Further weakening is expected outside the PAR region due to increasingly unfavorable environment and the eventual landfall over the landmass of China,” it added.
