MANILA, Philippines — Typhoon Yutu (international name) is seen to enter the Philippine area of responsibility on Saturday, state weather bureau PAGASA said.

At 11:00 a.m., Yutu was located 2,380 kilometers east of Central Luzon. The typhoon is packing maximum sustained winds of 210 kilometers per hour near the center and gusts of up to 260 kilometers per hour.

Once it enters the country’s jurisdiction, the weather disturbance will be given a local name “Rosita.”
