The tropical depression east of Mindanao has entered the Philippine area of responsibility on Wednesday afternoon and was named Onyok.
According to state weather bureau PAGASA, the tropical depression entered the country’s territory at around 1:45 p.m.
Meanwhile, typhoon Nona (international name Melor) was located 80 kilometers west of Ternate, Cavite at 1 p.m.
The weather bureau assured that the two weather disturbances will not affect each other as they do not have the same strength.
PAGASA warned that Onyok is likely to intensify and will crash into the Davao-Caraga region by Friday.
Typhoon Nona is expected to exit the PAR as a low pressure area by Friday.
