Typhoon 'Mangkhut' to enter PH Wednesday noon

In its 5 p.m. advisory, PAGASA said the powerful typhoon was last spotted 1,145 kilometers east of Virac, Catanduanes, packing maximum sustained winds of 205 kilometers per hour, nearing the strength of a supertyphoon (220 kph), and gustiness of up to 255 kph.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said Northern Luzon and Central Luzon should brace for strong winds and heavy rains as typhoon "Mangkhut" is expected to enter Philippine territory Wednesday noon. On Friday, the weather system is expected to bring hefty rainfall activities over Luzon, Cagayan, Isabela, Apayao, Kalinga, Abra, Ilocos Norte, and the Batanes.

The Philippines is anticipating that Mangkhut will be as strong as Haiyan, prompting the preparation of food, supplies and rescue as well as 1.7 billion pesos ($31.5 million) in stand-by funds, according to the disaster agency. In 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan killed more than 6,300 people in the Philippines.
