Tropical storm "Odette" remains stationary over the West Philippine Sea but is expected to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility Saturday.

PAGASA described 'Odette' as almost stationary and has not gone far from the landmass.

In its 11 a.m. advisory, PAGASA said Odette was spotted 315 kilometers West of Sinait, Ilocos Sur, packing maximum sustained winds of up to 90 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 113 kph.

It is moving Northwest at 7 kilometers per hour. 

Signal number 1 is still hoisted over Pangasinan.

Metro Manila, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, and Western Visayas will experience moderate to occasionally heavy rains, which may trigger flashfloods and landslides.

The rest of Luzon and the Visayas will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and thunderstorms.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (NDRRMC) has recorded one death, an elderly who was swept away by strong river current in Apayao.
