TACLOBAN CITY — The tropical depression east of Northern Luzon entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility at 12 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 13, and was named "Neneng" by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

According to PAGASA's 5 p.m. bulletin, the center of Tropical Depression "NENENG" was estimated to be 1,030 km east of Extreme Northern Luzon (19.9°N, 131.8°E) based on all available data.

The tropical depression has maximum sustained winds of 55 kilometers per hour near the center, gustiness of up to 70 kilometers per hour, and is currently moving westward at 30 kilometers per hour.

"NENENG is expected to intensify further as it moves over the Philippine Sea, and it could reach tropical storm status by Saturday. It is possible that the storm will intensify further before making a close approach to Extreme Northern Luzon," per PAGASA's bulletin.

The weather bureau also stated that Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No.1 could be issued as early as tomorrow morning or afternoon over the eastern portion of Northern Luzon in anticipation of winds of at least a strong breeze to near gale strength associated with the approaching tropical cyclone.

"The highest possible wind signal that may be hoisted is Wind Signal No. 2," PAGASA said. —iTacloban
