Article_Katring_PAGASA.jpgA new weather disturbance is on the radar of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Admisnitration (PAGASA). ABS-CBN reports that the disturbance is currently classified as a cyclone, but will be named "Katring" once it enters the Philippine area of responsibility.

To allay people's fears, Bernie de Leon of PAGASA said in a press conference that based on "numerical models, it (Katring) will hover near Northern Luzon, but it will move towards southern Japan."

Compared to super typhoon Juan, which battered northern Luzon last weekend, Katring's winds are weaker at 55 kilometers per hour.

"Kung magtulu-tuloy ito sa kanyang direksyon, ito'y posibleng hindi na makaapekto sa ating bansa," de Leon said.

FN encourages everyone to keep an eye out for Katring by monitoring these following sites for any typhoon warnings and reminders:
