Onyok slightly intensifies; still far from land

MANILA, Philippines – Tropical Depression Onyok slightly intensified on Wednesday night, December 16, said state weather bureau PAGASA in a bulletin issued 11 pm.

Onyok now has maximum winds of 55 kilometers per hour (km/h) near the center, compared to 45 km/h when it entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) early Wednesday afternoon.

PAGASA said Onyok was last spotted 775 kilometers east of Mati City, Davao Oriental, moving west at 19 km/h.

There are no areas under storm warning signals due to Onyok so far, because it is still too far from land.

Estimated rainfall amount is moderate to heavy within the 100-kilometer diameter of the tropical depression.

Earlier, PAGASA also said it expects Onyok to make landfall over the Caraga region in Mindanao on Friday, December 18.

It will then leave PAR on Sunday, December 20.

Aside from Onyok, the Philippines is also dealing with Tropical Storm Nona, which was a typhoon at its strongest. – Rappler.com
