Typhoon Hanna continues to intensify as it moves to Japan


Typhoon Hanna has worsened further as it moves to southern Ryukyu Islands in Japan, said Monday night state weather office PAGASA.

Hanna was spotted at 10 p.m. at 510 kilometers north of Basco northeast, Batanes. It was packaging 155 km / h peak winds and 190 km / h gusts. At 20 km / h, Hanna moved northwest. Friday morning it is anticipated to leave the Philippine region of responsibility.

Hanna is not expected to landfall, but the number 1 typhoon signal remains hoisted over Batanes and the Islands Babuyan Group.

Sea travel is dangerous owing to possibly harsh sea circumstances over the seaboards of regions under Signal No. 1, the seaboards of Luzon and Visayas, and the southern and eastern seaboards of Mindanao.

Moderate to heavy monsoon rains will remain across the southern parts of Palawan (including the Calamian and Cuyo Islands), Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Metro Manila, Ilocos, Cordillera, Zambales, Rizal, Bataan, Cavite, Laguna and Batangas.

With sometimes heavy rains, the remainder of Luzon and Western Visayas will have light to moderate. Meanwhile, at 1.970 km south of extreme Northern Luzon at 10 p.m., PAGASA said Severe Tropical Storm Krosa was situated.

Krosa has a maximum 110 km / h wind with a taste of 135 km / h. At 10 km / h, it moves southwest but is not anticipated to join PAR. Occasional taste circumstances will also remain over the western parts of Luzon and Visayas owing to the improved monsoon or habagat in the northeast.

A low pressure area was also found off the West Philippine Sea, especially 260 km west of Dagupan City in Pangasinan, apart from the two weather disturbances. But PAGASA said there is less chance that the LPA will evolve into a tropical depression.
