Tropical Depression “Onyok” maintained its strength as it continued to pose threat over Caraga region, the state weather bureau said Friday morning.

The tropical depression is seen to make landfall over Surigao del Sur within the day at around 8 p.m., weather forecaster Samuel Duran of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.

He said forecast models indicate that Onyok will no longer intensify into a storm and it will weaken further after landfall.

“It will exit the Philippine area of responsibility by Monday if it will survive as a low pressure area,” Duran said.
