MANILA, Philippines―Typhoon “Phanfone”, which is gathering strength in the western Pacific Ocean, was expected to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Friday, the state weather bureau said.

The typhoon, which will take the name “Neneng” once it enters the Philippines, would not make a landfall in the country, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said.

“It’s possible that it will develop further once it enters the PAR,” Pagasa weather forecaster Chris Perez said.

At 10 a.m., “Phanfone” was spotted 1,620 kilometers east of extreme northern Luzon while tracking a west northwest path toward southern Japan at a pace of 20 kph. It was moving at 150 kph with gusts of up to 185 kph.

He added that thunderstorms may still develop over the country on Thursday afternoon.
