Inday was forecast to move northwest at 15 kph, and will be located at 690 kilometers east northeast of Aparri by Wednesday morning, 695 kilometers northeast of the town by Thursday morning, and 740 kilometers north northeast of Basco, Batanes by Friday morning.

The Pagasa has not raised any public storm warning signal in the country, saying Tropical Depression Inday will not yet affect any part of the country.

It said, though, that Inday will bring an estimated rainfall amount of 7.5-15 millimeters per hour (moderate - heavy) within its 300-kilometer diameter. (LMY/Sunnex)
