Interaksyon.com reports that Jun Galang, weather forecaster of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) disclosed that a tropical depression off Northern Luzon has developed into a storm that has been given the international code name "Nalgae," which is Korean for wings.

Once it enters the Philippine area of responsibility, it will be assigned the local name "Quiel."

"Kung di magbabago, may posibilidad na landfall siya sa (If it does not change course, it is possible it will make landfall in) Northern Luzon," Galang said. He added that the storm's effects will be felt in Metro Manila by Sunday.

Pagasa is also monitoring another weather disturbance east of Mindanao. However, Galang said it is "too far to affect the country" and could dissipate in the next few days. But if it develops into a tropical depression and enter the Philippines, the weather disturbance will be named "Ramon."

Meanwhile, "Pedring," is expected to leave the Philippines Wednesday afternoon. Another Interaksyon.com report revealed that "Pedring" left "at least 18 persons dead" and damaged more than P100 million of infrastructure and crops. The storm also injured 13 other persons while 35 more are still missing in different parts of Luzon.

    Sa mga bagay na wala tayong kontrol gaya ng kalikasan, pinakamabuting mag-ingat at magpanalanginan.
