MANILA, Philippines — Typhoon Perla (international name Neoguri) was expected to exit the Philippine area of responsibility within the next 24 hours, the state weather bureau said yesterday.

However, extreme Northern Luzon will continue to experience occasional gusts until today due to the prevailing northeasterly surface wind flow.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) also warned fishermen and operators of small sea vessels against sailing in the seaboards of Northern Luzon due to potentially rough sea conditions associated with the weather system.

As of 3 p.m. yesterday, the eye of Perla was spotted at 890 kilometers east northeast of Basco, Batanes, packing winds of 130 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 160 kph.

Perla was forecast to move north-northeast toward the southern islands of Japan at 30 kph. It was forecast to weaken into a low-pressure area in the next two days.

Meanwhile, PAGASA spotted a new storm outside the Philippine area of responsibility.

As of 10 a.m., the severe tropical storm with international name Bualoi was located at 2,825 kms east of Visayas.

It packed winds of 95 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 115 kph, moving west northwest at 20 kph.

PAGASA said the storm remains “less likely” to enter the country.
