As of the 10AM today, the eye of Typhoon KAMMURI was estimated to be at 1,220 km East of Southern Luzon, outside the Philippine Area of Responsibility, 13.4 deg.North,135.5deg.East. It carries a maximum sustained winds at 150 km/h and gustiness of up to 185 km/h. Kammuri is still expected to move towards Bicol Region.

Residents of affected areas are advised to prepare for heavy rainshowers and strong winds brought by the typhoon. Once it enters PAR, Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal #1 may be raised over Northern and Eastern Samar. 
However, Metdesk company WXCharts tweeted: “Typhoon #Kammuri is headed directly for the Philippines after the weekend, potentially as a super typhoon, just as the SEA Games kick off.

"Devastating wind speeds over 150mph are possible upon landfall, alongside over 400mm of rainfall in places."

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) echoed Kammuri could become a super typhoon. But, intensification into a SUPER TYPHOON is less likely at this time but not ruled out.
