Typhoon “Jenny” (international name: Dujuan) intensified as it continued to move away from the country, the state weather bureau said on late Sunday morning.
In its 11 a.m. bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Jenny packed maximum sustained winds of 175 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gusts of up to 210 kph.
As of 10 a.m., the typhoon was 590 km east northeast of Itbayat, Batanes.
Public Storm Warning Signal No. 1 was hoisted over Batanes province.
Moving at 15 kph in a west northwest direction, Jenny is expected to exit the Philippine area of responsibility by Wednesday morning.

Meanwhile, Luzon and Western Visayas are expected to experience light to moderate rain on Sunday due to the southwest monsoon.
