MANILA, Philippines — Typhoon Paeng (international name: Trami) has continued to slow down on Tuesday as it moves west-northwestward, according to state weather bureau PAGASA.

Due to this, "Paeng" may only bring light to at times moderate rains over Zamboanga Peninsula, Western Visayas, Palawan and Occidental Mindoro on Wednesday, PAGASA said. It is expected to bring light to at times moderate rains over Northern Luzon on Friday.

United States-based Joint Typhoon Warning Center earlier reported that "Trami" has already intensified into a super typhoon, with maximum sustained winds of 259 kilometers per hour and gustiness of up to 314 kph.

PAGASA, however, said that as of 10:00 a.m., the typhoon’s eye was traced at 720 kilometers east of Basco, Batanes. It is only packing maximum sustained winds of 200 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 245 kilometers per hour.

The weather bureau said that sea travel is risky over the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon.

It did not raise any tropical cyclone warning signal. — Rosette Adel
