Typhoon “Marilyn” (international name In-Fa) weakened into a severe tropical storm and left the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) Wednesday morning.
The typhoon did not affect any part of the Philippines. While the weather bureau did not raise any storm signal, it advised fisher folks not to venture out over the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon.
As of Wednesday, the typhoon packed maximum sustained winds of 95 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 120 kph. On Thursday, Marilyn is expected to be 1,740 km East of Itbayat, Batanes, outside PAR.
Weathermen said the storm has a slim chance of returning to the country.
Meanwhile, strong to gale force winds will affect the Northern, Western and Eastern seaboards of Northern Luzon and the Eastern seaboard of Central and Southern Luzon.
The Cagayan region and the province of Batanes will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains. Metro Manila and the rest of the country will be partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated rainshowers or thunderstorms. IZA IGLESIAS
