Its wind speed continues at 185kph and packs a gustiness of 230kph as it continues to move west northwest of the archipelago, according to the PAGASA weather beaureu.
Magat Dam's water level, located at Magat River, a main tributary of the Cagayan River, has increased dramatically as Intense rain is pouring on the areas hit by the storm; it is continuing its spilling operation as its three gates remained open allowing it to spill over.

The Philippine government had given precautionary measures on how to brace for this storm surge and assigned Disaster Management Teams of each area of responsibility to assist the victims of this calamity.
