Despite weakening into a tropical storm as it crossed the Philippines, Yutu is expected to restrengthen into a typhoon over the South China Sea.

Many areas previously impacted by Typhoon Mangkhut in mid-September were dealt another round of heavy rain and damaging winds from Yutu which made landfall in Isabela province around 4 a.m. local time.

In advance of the storm's arrival, more than 10,000 people were evacuated from high risk areas, according to Bloomberg.

Ra infall amounts in excess of 150 mm (6 inches) were reported across parts of northern and eastern Luzon.

Typhoon-force winds battered the region, causing damage to homes and agriculture.

Yutu, known locally in the Philippines as Rosita, will now track northwest into the South China Sea, allowing conditions to improve across the Philippines by Wednesday.

Manila, on the western coast of southern Luzon, was largely spared from Yutu's impacts as the capital city reported a period of gusty winds and rain on Tuesday morning.

As Yutu departs the Philippines, it will slowly meander west and the n northward in the South China Sea through Friday.

Strengthening into a typhoon is expected by Wednesday night as the storm remains over the open waters of the South China Sea.

The turn toward the north will put areas from eastern China to Taiwan at risk for impacts from Yutu beginning as early as Wednesday and continuing into this weekend.

Yutu will cause locally heavy rainfall across eastern Taiwan as moisture streams into the higher terrain of the island, bringing the risk for flooding and mudslides from Wednesday into Friday.

The remainder of the island will escape any significant impacts from Yutu.

As Yutu tracks no rthward, it will encounter hostile atmospheric conditions, causing significant weakening as it approaches China and Taiwan. The potential also exists for Yutu to dissipate without making landfall in either country.

Impacts from Yutu are expected to remain east of Hong Kong this week with the risk for flooding rainfall from eastern Guangdong into southeast Fujian.
