MANILA, Philippines — Typhoon Paeng (international name: Trami) is slowly leaving the country’s jurisdiction while keeping its strength, state weather bureau PAGASA said Friday.

As of 10 a.m., “Paeng” was seen 655 kilometers east northeast of Basco, Batanes, with maximum sustained winds of 160 kilometers per hour and gustiness of up to 195 kph.

The typhoon, which is moving northwest at a slow pace, will leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility Saturday morning.

It is spiralling towards Japan’s southern islands of Okinawa and Amami, bringing violent winds and torrential rains.

But because of its distance from the Philippines, “Paeng” has no direct effect to the country, PAGASA said.

The state weather bureau is also monitoring the low pressure area outside PAR. As of 3 a.m., it was located 2,915 kilometers east of Mindanao.

The new weather disturbance is forecast to enter the country’s jurisdiction by Tuesday.

Forecast positions

  • Saturday morning: 705 kilometers northeast of Basco, Batanes (outside PAR)
  • Sunday morning: 1,355 kilometers northeast of Basco, Batanes (outside PAR)
