Weather bureau PAGASA is monitoring another tropical depression, as Typhoon Jolina continues to pound the country.
The second storm could possibly enter the Philippine area of responsibility on Wednesday, said PAGASA in a statement on Monday.
PAGASA spotted the new tropical depression at 1,480 km east of the Visayas, packing 45 maximum winds of 45 kph near the center and gusts of up to 55 kph. It is moving north northwestward at 15 kph.
Should the tropical depression enter PAR on Wednesday, it will be given the local name Kiko. Kiko will be the country’s 11th tropical cyclone for the year.
“It currently has no direct impact [in the country] but we will continue to monitor it just like Jolina,” said the weather bureau .
