TROPICAL depression “Ineng” has maintained its strength as a tropical storm and was expected to bring rains in parts of Luzon, the state-run weather bureau said.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) last spotted Ineng at 840 kilometers east of Casiguran, Aurora. It was moving in a west-northwest direction at a speed of 15 kilometers per hour (kph) and carrying maximum sustained winds of 65 kph and gustiness of 80 kph.


Pagasa weather specialist Ezra Bulquerin said that Ineng, the 9th tropical cyclone to enter the country, was unlikely to make landfall in any part of the country. It was expected to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Sunday.

On Thursday, the outer rain bands of Ineng are expected to bring cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over the Bicol Region, Quezon Province, and Aurora. Pagasa said that sea travel was prohibited for small fishing vessel.

Gale warning was raised over the Camarines Provinces, Catanduanes, the eastern coasts of Albay and Sorsogon, Northern and Eastern Samar, Leyte, Quezon including Polilio Island, Surigao Del Norte, Surigao, and Dinagat Islands.

The southwest monsoon is expected to bring moderate to heavy rains over Pangasinan, Zambales, Bataan, Cavite, Batangas, and Mindoro provinces. Light to moderate with intermittent heavy rains are expected over Metro Manila, Batanes, Cavite, Batangas, and Mindoro provinces.
