MANILA - Typhoon Chedeng maintained its strength and is possibly reaching its peak intensity, the state weather bureau said Friday.

In its 5 a.m. weather bulletin, PAGASA said Chedeng was last sighted 875 km east of Central Luzon or 910 km east of Northern Luzon, packing maximum sustained winds of 130 kph near the center with 160 kph gusts.
Strong to typhoon-force winds were extended around 520 km from the center of the typhoon, the weather agency said.

Chedeng is not expected to directly cause heavy rainfall in the Philippines in the next 3 to 5 days. But the southwest monsoon (habagat) enhanced by the typhoon is projected to bring occasional rains over some portions of southwestern Luzon.

It may also cause gusty conditions over the following areas:


  • Visayas
  • Romblon
  • Occidental Mindoro
  • Northern portion of Palawan including Kalayaan, Calamian, and Cuyo Islands
  • Surigao del Norte
  • Dinagat Islands
  • Camiguin.


  • Visayas
  • Calabarzon
  • Mimaropa
  • Bicol Region
  • Camiguin
  • Dinagat Islands


  • Mimaropa
  • Western Visayas
  • Bicol Region
  • Calabarzon
  • Metro Manila
  • Ilocos Region
  • Northern Samar
  • Zambales
  • Bataan
  • Bulacan
  • Aurora
  • Benguet

PAGASA, meanwhile, warned Chedeng may bring moderate to rough seas (2.0 to 3.5 m) over the seaboards of extreme Northern Luzon and the eastern seaboard of mainland Northern Luzon. 

The weather bureau said the typhoon is expected to remain far from Philippine landmass and it may exit the country's area of responsibility (PAR) on Monday morning.
