MANILA, Philippines (Update 2, 11:38 a.m.) — The tropical depression spotted east of Luzon has entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility, state weather bureau PAGASA said Thursday.

The tropical depression entered the country’s jurisdiction at 9:30 a.m. It was given a local name “Marilyn” —the 13th tropical cyclone in 2019.

“Marilyn” was located 1,355 kilometers east of Casiguran, Aurora packing maximum sustained winds of 55 km per hour and gusts of up to 70 kph. It is moving northwest at 25 kph.
