Within 24 hours, an LPA off the coast of E. Samar may develop into a TD
As it travels northwestward towards the extreme northern Luzon, the low-pressure system off the coast of Guiuan, Eastern Samar, has the potential to develop into a tropical depression (TD) within 24 hours.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) stated in a report issued at 5 a.m. that the LPA, which was last detected 780 kilometers east of Guiuan, is not directly impacting the nation.
It will be given the name “Emong” after it has progressed to the level of a TD.
As a precaution, Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 1 may be raised over regions of extreme northern Luzon in anticipation of potential high wind to near gale conditions.
