As Ondoy exits, Pepeng enters. The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) spotted typhoon Pepeng (international name Parma) 650 kms East of Borongan, Eastern Samar early Thursday morning.

Storm signal no. 1 was raised in Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur and Catanduanes.

Pepeng packs stronger winds than Ondoy, reaching up to 150 kilometers per hour near the center and with gustiness of up to 185 kph. The typhoon is currently moving West Northwest at 24 kph.

According to PAGASA, “residents in low lying areas and near mountain slopes under signal #1 are advised to take all the necessary precautionary measures against possible flashfloods and landslides.”
