MANILA - Severe tropical storm Dindo left the Philippine area of responsibility on Monday morning, the state weather bureau said.

The country's 4th storm this year had no direct impact and was last spotted 555 kilometers north northeast of Basco, Batanes (outside PAR) as of 10 a.m., PAGASA said.

It was packing maximum winds of 100 km per hour and gusts of up to 125 kph while moving north northwest towards eastern China at 15 kph, the agency added.

Occasional monsoon rains will, however, prevail over Batanes and Babuyan Islands, according to the weather bureau.

A low pressure area, estimated 450 km east southeast of Davao City, may bring scattered rains over Caraga and Davao region but was "less likely" to develop into a tropical depression in the next 48 hours, PAGASA said.

The weather bureau also warned that sea travel is risky over over the northern and western seaboards of Northern Luzon and the western seaboards of Central Luzon due to rough to very rough seas.

Small seacrafts are advised to take precautionary measures while venturing out over the other seaboards of Luzon due to moderate to rough seas.
