MANILA – The fourth potential storm for the year to be named “Dante” may enter the Philippine area of responsibility next week, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Administration (Pagasa) said Wednesday.

Right now, the low-pressure area (LPA) was spotted in southern Philippines and may enter between Visayas and Mindanao as early as Friday.
