The typhoon was last spotted 195 kilometers west northwest of Dagupan City, Pangasinan, packing maximum sustained winds of 110 km per hour and 135 kph gusts.

It is forecast to leave the Philippine area of responsibility on Wednesday if it continues to move west at 25 kph.

PAGASA said moderate to heavy rains could pour over the western section of northern and central Luzon, as it advised residents in these areas to prepare and take action against possible flooding and landslides.

It also asked fisherfolk and those with small seacraft not to venture out over the seaboards of areas with typhoon signals and the eastern and western seaboards of southern Luzon.
