After causing at least one death, Typhoon Labuyo (international name Utor) continued to intensify as it moved farther away from the Philippines Monday night, state weather forecasters said.

PAGASA, in its 11 p.m. advisory, said Typhoon Labuyo is expected to exit the Philippine area of responsibility early Tuesday.

It said that as of 10 p.m., Labuyo was estimated at 290 km west of Laoag City or 350 km northwest of Baguio City, with maximum winds of 160 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 195 kph.

"All public storm warning signals are now lowered," the weather service added.

PAGASA said Labuyo was moving west-northwest at 24 kph and is expected to be 570 km northwest of Baguio City or 510 km west of Laoag City - outside the Philippine area of responsibility - by Tuesday morning.

However, despite its movement, PAGASA said Labuyo will still enhance the southwest monsoon, which will bring "moderate to occasionally heavy rain over the western section of southern Luzon and Visayas."

It advised fishermen, especially those using small seacraft, "not to venture out into the northern seaboard of northern Luzon, seaboards of southern Luzon and western seaboard of Visayas due to big waves generated by Typhoon Labuyo." — DVM, GMA News
