Tropical Storm HAIYAN Could Become a Super Typhoon

HAIYAN, the 30th tropical storm of the NW Pacific Basin so far this year, could develop into a super typhoon over the next few days before striking the Philippines.

Meantime, Tropical Depression WILMA weakened into a low pressure area (LPA) after making landfall earlier on Monday, reported the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

Visayas and the regions of Zamboanga Peninsula, northern Mindanao and Caraga will have moderate to heavy rains and thunderstorms that may trigger flash floods and landslides, said PAGASA.
