    PAGASA said strong to typhoon-force winds may extend outwards up to 320 km from the center.

    The super typhoon will move generally westward today over the sea south of Japan, then turn west-southwestward tomorrow (31 August) while decelerating over the sea southeast of the Ryukyu Islands, the weather central said.

    Once it enters PAR on Wednesday, PAGASA will give domestic name 'Henry' to this tropical cyclone.

    Further deceleration is forecast to occur as it turns more southwestward over the northern Philippine Sea.

    By Friday (September 2) through Saturday (September 3), 'Hinnamnor' may become almost stationary.

    'Hinnamnor' intensified into Super Typhoon at 2:00 PM today. This tropical cyclone may continue to intensify over the sea south of Japan and may reach a peak intensity of 195 km/h.

    The extent of tropical cyclone winds of the typhoon may continue to expand in the coming days as it moves towards the northern Philippine Sea. As such, the possibility of hoisting a Tropical Cyclone Wind Signal over Extreme Northern Luzon during the occurrence of this tropical cyclone within the PAR region is not ruled out by PAGASA.

    This tropical cyclone may bring rough seas over the northern and eastern seaboard of Luzon beginning late Thursday (September 1) or early Friday. Such condition may be risky for those using small seacrafts. Mariners are advised to continue monitoring for updates.
