'Bebeng' brings strong winds

Breaking Storm News
CEBU, Philippines—Coast Guard detachments in the Visayas were placed on heightened alert yesterday in anticipation of huge waves and massive rains brought by typhoon “Bebeng” that may endanger the lives of sea travelers.

Packing winds of 140 km per hour with gustiness up to 170 kph, typhoon "Bebeng" (international name "Man-yi") entered the Philippine area of responsibility before dawn yesterday, bringing rains to the western section of the country.

The second typhoon to hit the country would cause downpour in Palawan, Mindoro and Panay Island in Western Visayas and Batangas in Southern Luzon for the next couple of days, said Pagasa. The cyclone, which developed from a tropical storm, was moving at a speed of 24 kph, veering northwest along the eastern section of the country towards Taiwan.
