REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Typhoon Ombpog, the strongest storm in the world since Super Typhoon Yolanda last year, has spared the Philippines.
As of this time, Typhoon Ompong – international name Typhoon Vongfon – changed its course and is now headed Northwest over the Philippine Sea.
Philippine weather experts say the eye of Typhoon Ompong was found at 957 kilometers east of Aparri, Cagayan.
While it will not have a direct impact on the Philippines, it is expected to cause rough sea conditions in various parts of Luzon and Visayas.
Typhoon Ompong is headed to Japan this weekend.
