Kammuri’s extreme tropical storm further intensified early Thursday as it continued on its way to the region, PAGASA said.
Moving northwest at a speed of 10 km / h, on Sunday, Dec. 1, weather specialist Loriedin De La Cruz said Kammuri is expected to enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR).
Locally, the storm will be called Tisoy, this year’s 20th tropical cyclone to enter the country.
Kammuri may affect central and southern Luzon, hosting 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games sporting events from November 30 to December 11.
It will carry intermittent rains across the Visayas, Caraga, Northern Mindanao, and the Zamboanga Peninsula.
In the meantime, the monsoon or amihan from the northeast will bring scattered rains across northern and central Luzon
