Meanwhile, Super Typhoon (STY) YUTU (31W) continues to weaken as it is just only 24 hours away before entering the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). As of 11:00 AM today, the eye was located about 501 km East of PAR or 1,883 km East of Northern Luzon (16.8°N 139.7°E). With maximum 10-min. sustained winds of 220 km/hr near the center with higher gusts, and was moving WNW @ 20 km/hr. YUTU is still too far to directly affect any part of the country and is still uncertain if it will affect the Philippine landmass.
