New tropical threat may create hazards for northern Philippines, Taiwan next week

A new tropical threat is brewing in the western Pacific Ocean and can heighten the risk for flooding across the northern Philippines and Taiwan next week.

Two storms currently churning over the Philippine Sea are expected to merge and may become the next tropical depression or storm in the west ern Pacific Ocean in the coming days.

"There is improved chance for development over the northern Philippine Sea and Luzon Strait into the South China Sea Sunday into early next week," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Jason Nicholls said.

"This feature could bring impacts of flooding rain and potentially strong winds to northern Luzon Island in the Philippines early next week and also Taiwan and/or southeastern China as the week progresses," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Houk said.

The extent of the risk for damaging winds will hinge on how strong the storm becomes. Rough seas will also be stirred and create dangers for boaters as the storm strengthens.

The exact track of the storm will also determine which areas face the heaviest rainfall and greatest risk for flooding. Roads and bridges can become damaged in the hardest-hit areas.

Mudslides may further endanger lives and property in the mountains.

Latest indications do not suggest that the worst of the storm will target northern Taiwan and other areas that were blasted by Super Typhoon Maria earlier this week.

"Regardless of development of this feature, southwestern Luzon will face the risk for flooding this weekend into midweek from a plume of monsoonal moisture feeding into the region," Houk said.

Residents in Manila will have to remain vigilant for flooding to quickly inundate parts of the capital and bring travel to a halt for a time.

Remember to avoid a potentially deadly situation by never driving or walking through a flooded road.

All residents at risk for impacts from this budding storm are urged to closely monitor its progress. Be sure to follow the advice of local government and heed any evacuation orders in the coming days. Keep gas tanks filled and cell phones fully charged.

As it becomes more evident where the heaviest rain is expected, those living in flood-prone areas may consider moving valuable s to second or higher floors or at least off the ground.

"In the longer range, conditions will remain favorable for tropical development over the northwestern Pacific through the end of July," Nicholls said. "There will be the chance of development later next week and next weekend to the east of the Ryukyu Islands."
