MANILA  (Mabuhay) — Typhoon Jenny on Saturday continued to intensify as it moved across the northern Philippine Sea, weather bureau PAGASA said.

In its 11 a.m. weather update, PAGASA said that at 10 a.m., Jenny was spotted at 860 km east of Itbayat Batanes, with maximum sustained winds of 140 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 170 kph, and was moving northwest at 13 kph.

Also, PAGASA said Palawan, Western Visayas, and Zamboanga Peninsula in Midanao will experience moderate to occasionally heavy rain showers as Jenny tugged along the southwest monsoon.

Light to moderate with occasional heavy rain showers will also affect portions of Bukidnon, Davao del Norte, Davao del Sur, Sarangai, Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Sur, and Maguindanao in Mindanao the next two to three hours.

The same weather condition will affect Negros Occidental, Siquijor, southern portions of Negros, and Cebu in Visayas.

Meanwhile, thunderstorms will affect portions of Batangas, Laguna, Pampanga, Zambales, and Sorsogon, PAGASA said.

A gale warning is up over the eastern seaboards of Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao due to strong to gale force winds generating rough to very rough waters in these areas. (MNS
