‘Ineng’ intensifies into tropical storm – Pagasa

TROPICAL depression “Ineng” intensified into a tropical storm on Wednesday but was not expected to make landfall, the state-run weather bureau said.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) last spotted Ineng at 1,135 kilometers east of Infanta, Quezon. It was moving in a northwest direction at a speed of 15 kilometers per hour (kph), carrying maximum sustained winds of 65 kph and gustiness of 80 kph.

Pagasa weather specialist Aldczar Aurelio said that Ineng, the 9th tropical cyclone to enter the country, was not likely to make landfall and was expected to maintain its strength as it exits the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Sunday.

The outer rain bands of Ineng brought scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over the Bicol Region, Quezon Province, and Visayas while the southwest monsoon affected Batanes, Babuyan Group of Islands, Mimaropa (Occidental and Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan), and the rest of Visayas.

No tropical cyclone warning was raised but Pagasa advised residents in affected areas to be vigilant of possible floods and landslides. No gale warnings were raised but moderate to rough seas were expected over the eastern sections of Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. DIVINA NOVA JOY DELA CRUZ
