MANILA, Philippines — The low-pressure area (LPA) being monitored by the state weather bureau east of Southern Luzon has now developed into a tropical depression, locally named Egay, and may intensify into a supertyphoon.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said in a Facebook post on Friday morning that the LPA intensified and became a cyclone at 8 a.m.

Based on the 11 am advisory of Pagasa, the center of TD Egay is estimated at 900 kilometers east of Southeastern Luzon. 

It has maximum sustained winds of 55 km/h near the center, gustiness of up to 70 km/h, and central pressure of 1004 hPa

The advisory said TD Egay is forecast to intensify in the next 12 hours into a Tropical Storm.

For now, the tropical depression is slowly moving north northwestward, the bulletin said.

Strong winds extend outwards up to 550 km from the center.
