TD 'Sendong' enters PH, may intensify in next 24 hours

A tropical depression from the east entered Philippine territory Thursday morning and was locally codenamed "Sendong," possibly the last cyclone to enter Philippine territory this year.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration said that as of 10 a.m., Sendong was estimated at 840 km east southeast of Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.

In a post on its Twitter account, PAGASA said Sendong packed maximum winds of 55 kph and is forecast to move west northwest at 30 kph.

"'Sendong' is likely to intensify within the next 24 hours. Estimated rainfall amount is from 10 to 25 mm per hour (moderate to heavy rains) within the 300-km diameter of the tropical depression," it said.

Earlier, PAGASA said it expects only one cyclone to enter or form in Philippine territory this month.

PAGASA said Sendong is not expected to directly affect the country on Thursday, but will make landfall at the Samar-Surigao area between Friday evening and Saturday morning.

Earlier, PAGASA forecaster Sonny Pajarilla said Sendong is expected to stay in Philippine territory during the weekend.

PAGASA's 11 a.m. bulletin said Sendong was expected to be 300 km east southeast of Surigao City Friday morning; and in the vicinity of Iloilo City Saturday morning.

By Sunday morning, it is expected to be 295 km west of Coron, Palawan. — RSJ, GMA News
