MANILA - Tropical cyclones "Maring" and "Lannie" have left the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) Wednesday afternoon, state weather bureau PAGASA said.

At 4 p.m., Tropical Storm Maring was spotted 460 kilometers west of Iba, Zambales, while Typhoon Lannie was seen 640 kilometers northeast of Basco, Batanes. 

Maring is moving towards Vietnam at 18 kph, with maximum sustained winds of 85 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 105 kph.

Meanwhile, Typhoon Lannie is packing maximum sustained winds of 130 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 160 kph. It is forecast to move northwest towards Japan at 13 kph.

The state weather bureau said isolated rainshowers and partly cloudy skies are expected over Metro Manila due to localized thunderstorms.

Mindanao, meanwhile, will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with rainshower and thunderstorms due to an intertropical convergence zone.

Maring, which caused floods and landslides across Luzon, left at least 5 people dead and 7 others missing.

China's meteorological agency said the Typhoon Lannie, with international name Talim, could intensify into a super typhoon as it continues to churn towards Taiwan, and Zhejiang and Fujian provinces on the Chinese mainland.
