No landfall Mawar to direct `Habagat’ to Palawan, Visayas, Zambo

Super typhoon Mawar may not make landfall but it may still raise storm signal once it enters the Philippine area of responsibility.

That’s according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration which added that it will make it to PAR either Friday or Saturday.

By that time, PAGASA will call it “Betty,” the second storm to hit the country this year, one that is described as the biggest typhoon in years.

PAGASA said it tracked Mawar at 2,215 kilometers east of Visayas.

Mawar is expected to enhance the Southwest monsoon bringing rains in Palawan, Visayas, and the Zamboanga Peninsula.
