Trop­i­cal storm could get big­ger

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

A trop­i­cal storm near­ing the Philip­pines on Fri­day could strengthen into a ty­phoon, bring­ing mod­er­ate to heavy rains and blus­tery weather on Christ­mas Day. Trop­i­cal storm Nock-Ten was 790 kilo­me­ters east of Guiuan in the eastern part of the coun­try as of Fri­day morn­ing, pack­ing winds of up to 105 km/h, fore­cast­ers said. Of­fi­cials warned of pos­si­ble land­slides and flood­ing along the storm’s path, and surges in coastal ar­eas that will make sea travel risky.
