Typhoon ‘Vongfong’ to enter PH tonight, to become ‘Ompong’
MANILA, Philippines — A new typhoon is set to enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility Tuesday night, three days after Typhoon “Neneng” (international codename: Phanfone) left the area.
In its weather advisory, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said Typhoon “Vongfong” would be called “Ompong” locally.
Pagasa last spotted “Vongfong” at 10 a.m. at 1,500 kilometers southeast of extreme northern Luzon.
