MANILA - Typhoon Quinta has made its third landfall over Quezon, the state weather bureau said.

PAGASA said Quinta made third landfall over San Andres, Quezon at 10:30 p.m. Sunday.

Quinta made its first landfall over San Miguel Island in Tabaco City, Albay at 6:10 p.m., before making another landfall at 6:50 p.m. in the vicinity of Malinao, Albay.

Quinta intensified into a typhoon at 2 p.m. Sunday. It is expected to further intensify while traversing the West Philippine Sea.

The country's 17th storm this year was last estimated over the coastal waters of San Andres, Quezon at 10 p.m., moving west at 30 km per hour while packing winds of 125 kph and gusts of up to 150 kph, PAGASA said.

It is forecast to move generally westward as it traverses Southern Luzon until Monday afternoon, and is likely to exit the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) on Tuesday, PAGASA added.

On Sunday to Monday morning, the storm will bring moderate to heavy with at times intense rains over the Bicol region, Calabarzon, Aurora, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Romblon, Marinduque, northern Palawan including Calamian and Cuyo Islands, Northern Samar, Samar, Biliran, Aklan, Capiz, and Antique.

The northern portions of mainland Cagayan, Isabela, Apayao, and Ilocos Norte, meantime, will experience moderate to heavy with at times intense rains due to the tail-end of a frontal system, PAGASA said.

The two weather systems will bring light to moderate with at times heavy rains over Metro Manila, the rest of Luzon, Zamboanga Peninsula, Bangsamoro, Northern Mindanao, Caraga, and the rest of Visayas.
