Storm ‘Jenny’ enters PH


A tropical storm hovering east of Luzon with international name “Dujani” entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Wednesday afternoon and was renamed “Jenny,” the 10th tropical cyclone to enter the country this year and the first for this month, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

Weather forecaster Samuel Duran said tropical storm “Jenny” entered the PAR at 5 p.m. and was located based on all available data at 1,465 kilometers east of Northern Luzon with maximum sustained winds of 65 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 80 kph. It is forecast to move west-northwest at 15 kph.

Duran said the tropical storm is not expected to make landfall in any part of the country but will enhance the southwest monsoon or “hanging habagat” that will induce rains in many parts of the arcipelago.
