‘Tomas’ seen reversing gear, may re-enter PAR

Typhoon “Tomas” is expected to re-enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility within the next 12 to 18 hours, but will not make landfall, the weather bureau said Sunday.

“Tomas” entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Saturday but left quickly and was estimated 1,495 kilometers east of Aparri as of 11 am on Sunday.

The storm was packing maximum sustained winds of 145 kilometers per hour near the center and gustiness of up to 150 kph, and was moving west-southwest slowly.

Sea travel remains risky over the seaboards of Northern Luzon and the eastern seaboards of Central Luzon, Southern Luzon and the Visayas due to rough to very rough seas associated with the ongoing surge of the northeast monsoon.
