LPA develops into Tropical Depression Ineng

Metro Manila, September 5 ------ The low pressure area spotted east of extreme North Luzon has developed into a tropical depression called "Ineng," but raising wind signals remains unlikely at this time, the state weather bureau said early Tuesday morning.

In its 5 a.m. bulletin, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said the southwest monsoon enhanced by Ineng and Tropical Storm Haiku is expected to weaken within the week but occasional rains are still possible over some parts of Luzon in the next three days. "Ito (Ineng) ay kumikilos pahilaga ng mabagal. Sa kasalukuyan ay wala itong direct effect sa ano mang bahagi ng ating bansa maliban na lamang sa extension nito na magdudulot ngayong araw ng mga pag-ulan ilang bahagi ng Northern Luzon," weather specialist Grace Castañeda said in a press briefing.

The bureau said gusty conditions are forecast over Batanes, Ilocos provinces, the western portion of Pangasinan, Zambales, Bataan, Kalayaan Islands, Lubang Island, and Romblon. A gale warning is also raised in the areas of Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan, Zambales, Bataan, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Northern Palawan, Aklan, and Antique.

PAGASA also warned that possible flooding and landslides are still possible. Ineng was last spotted 925 kilometers east of extreme northern Luzon, moving slowly with maximum sustained winds of 45 kilometers per hour. It is expected to exit the Philippine Area of Responsibility on Tuesday or Wednesday.
