- Tropical depression Samuel lashed the province of Palawan
- PAGASA has monitored another cyclone that may enter PAR
- However, it is too far yet and it is possible not to make a landfall
According to PAGASA, another tropical storm may enter the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) on Nov. 25 (Sunday) or Nov. 26 (Monday). KAMI learned from ABS-CBN News that the tropical storm with international name Man-yi was last seen 2, 460 kilometers east of Mindanao.
However, according to weather forecaster Gener Quitlong, Man-yi is still too far away to have an effect to the Philippines. He also said that Man-yi is not likely to make its landfall, however, there could still be changes.
“Napakalayo pa po nito. Wala pang epekto,” Quitlong stated.
"Dahil nasa dagat pa ito at may kalayuan pa, posible pa po itong lumakas at maaaring umabot sa typhoon," he added.
Once Man-yi enters PAR, it will be named Tomas. It has maximum sustained winds of 85 kph and gustiness of 105 kph.
As previously reported by KAMI, tropical depression Samuel entered PAR last November 19. 18 areas were under signal no. 1 due to the cyclone. In addition, Samuel lashed Palawan. It was last seen 90 kilometers north-northwest of Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. It is expected to leave PAR either on Nov. 22 or Nov. 23.
