Typhoon Mirinae (23W), located approximately 650 nautical miles east of Manila, Philippines, has tracked westward at 15 knots over the past six hours. Maximum significant wave height is 30 feet.

The Philippine weather bureau has placed four areas under storm signal number one as Mirinae intensified and continued moving toward Luzon, northern Philippines.

The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) forecast Thursday that TY 23W will make a landfall Friday night and bring heavy rains to the provinces of Isabela, Aurora, Northern Quezon and Polillo Islands.

PAGASA has advised residents in these areas, especially those living in low-lying areas and near mountain slopes, to prepare for possible flashfloods and landslides. irinae is expected to bring more rain, and have winds more powerful than Typhoon Parma (19W) which battered northern Luzon early this month.
