A tropical depression that formed south of the Philippines is moving rapidly towards the East Sea and is likely to develop into a storm, the Vietnamese National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting has warned. At 4 pm on Wednesday, the depression was located in an area east of the Philippines’ Mindanao Island with winds of up to 49 kph and squalls of 50-74 kph, the center reported Thursday morning. The depression is moving west-northwest at a speed of 25 kph towards the southeast area of the East Sea. At 7 pm on Thursday, the depression will be centered in an area northeast of the Philippines’ Palawan Island, with the same wind strength. After entering the East Sea tonight, the depression may strengthen into a storm, the center warned. In the next 24 hours, the system will likely continue moving west-northwest at the same speed. The  center said it is closely monitoring the movements and the strength of the fast-moving tropical depression.
