MANILA, Philippines — The state weather bureau said weather disturbance “Domeng” (international name: Maliksi) has developed into a typhoon as it departed the Philippine Area of Responsibility.

In its severe weather bulletin at 9 a.m., PAGASA said Domeng’s eye was last traced outside PAR at 1,045 kilometer east northeast of Basco, Batanes.

The typhoon has maximum sustained winds of 120 kilometer per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 145 kilometer per hour.

PAGASA reiterated that despite its exit, Domeng still enhanced southwest monsoon or habagat, which will continue to bring rains over some parts of Luzon especially over the western section until early next week.

Domeng is expected to move northeast at 37 kph and remain northeast of Basco, Batanes until Monday.

Due to this, PAGASA said sea travel remains risky around Luzon.

PAGASA said its latest bulletin was the last it would issue for Domeng unless it comes back into the Philippine Area of Responsibility..

“The public is advised to continue monitoring for updates, take appropriate actions against possible flooding and landslides, and coordinate with local disaster risk reduction and management offices,” PAGASA said. —Rosette Adel
