MANILA—The Philippines is bracing for a tropical cyclone expected to make landfall south of Manila early Tuesday, with winds that could be fiercer than a storm that killed more than 200 people in 2006 after ravaging the capital and the main island of Luzon.

Initial estimates put Tropical Storm Rammasun’s central winds at 110 kilometers an hour (68 miles an hour), but the Philippines’ weather bureau said the cyclone could intensify into a typhoon as it travels west across the Pacific Ocean. A typhoon has center winds of 119 kilometers an hour to 200 kilometers an hour.

The storm, with a diameter of 400 kilometers (250 miles), is forecast to make landfall in Albay province. The weather bureau expects it to pass through the capital and the provinces of Bataan and Zambales. The weather bureau says the storm should be out of the country’s territory by Thursday morning.

Rammasun is expected to bring one-meter high storm surges early Tuesday on the country’s eastern seaboard. The weather bureau said the height of the storm surge could increase if the cyclone arrives during high tide.

Tropical storm Rammasun will be the seventh tropical cyclone to enter Philippine territory this year.

In late September 2006, tropical storm Xangsane caused floods and landslides that killed more than 200 people and affected more than four million. The Philippines was hit by one of the most powerful storms in its history in November, when Typhoon Haiyan ripped through the country and left more than 6,000 people dead.

Alexander Pama, executive director of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, said the government will adjust its disaster plans as it monitors the approaching storm. He said the government will decide late Monday whether to order the evacuation of high risk areas once more data on the storm are available.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development said it has prepared nearly 80,000 food packs to be distributed to areas affected by the storm.
