The severe hurricane named Typhoon Haishen is about to enter the Philippines within tomorrow, that is what the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.

Philippines: what is the power of Typhoon Haishen and where the hurricane will land?
“Haishen” has maximum sustained winds of 130 kilometers per hour (kph) and gustiness of 150 kph. It is moving west-northwest at 20 kph. Once it enters PAR, the typhoon will be locally named as “Kristine.”
Meanwhile, Dela Cruz said the southwest hurricane will bring moderate to strong winds in northern Luzon. Pagasa’s forecast showed that the entire country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers due to the southwest monsoon or localized thunderstorms.
The Pagasa advisory sheet reports that hurricane Haishen continues to intensify as it moves towards the Philippines and that the typhoon “eye” estimated based on all available data at 1,695 km East of Extreme Northern Luzon (OUTSIDE PAR)(20.2°N,138.2°E)
