Tropical storm “Marce” (international name: Tokage) has kept its strength while traversing the West Philippine Sea on its way out of the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), the state weather bureau has said.
In its bulletin at 5 a.m. Sunday, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said Marce packed maximum sustained winds of up to 85 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gustiness of up to 105 kph.
The storm, moving north at a pace of 11 kph, was spotted at 320 kilometers west of Iba, Zambales as of 4 a.m.
Storm signals have been lifted since Saturday morning.
Marce is forecast to exit the PAR Sunday morning or afternoon.
