TYPHOON "Tomas" (Man-Yi) is expected to re-enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR), the state weather bureau said on Sunday, November 25.
In its 11 a.m. weather advisory, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the typhoon is expected to re-enter the country within 12 to 18 hours.
Tomas, which briefly entered the PAR on Saturday, November 24, remains stationary in the easternmost part of the Philippine Sea while slowly moving southwestward.
Pagasa located the typhoon east of Aparri in Cagayan province. It has a maximum sustained winds of 145 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and gusts up to 180kph.
Pagasa added that it has no direct effect on any part of the country and it is unlikely to make landfall.
Northeast Monsoon (Amihan) continues to affect northern Luzon and some parts of the Visayas, thus, Pagasa advised sea travel remains risky in these areas.
The typhoon is expected to move northeast of Virac Catanduanes on Monday morning. CLC/SunStar Philippines)
