MANILA, Philippines — Typhoon Karding, which began weakening after hitting land on Sunday, continued to track westward toward Nueva Ecija before midnight after its second landfall.

In its 11 p.m. bulletin, state weather bureau PAGASA recorded the eye of the cyclone in the vicinity of San Leonardo, Nueva Ecija as of 10 p.m. while moving at a relatively slow pace of 20 kilometers per hour (kph).

The cyclone was packing maximum sustained winds of 175 kph near the center with gustiness of up to 215 kph.

While Karding's strength has reduced while tracking across land, it still threatens vast stretches of Luzon and is expected to maintain its typhoon-level intensity.

After making its first landfall near Burdeos, Quezon at around 5:30 p.m. and a second one in the area of Dingalan, Aurora at 8:20 p.m. on Sunday, the cyclone is forecast to cross agricultural Central Luzon.
