  • The storm weakened to category 3: Super Typhoon. 
  • Winds up to 175 kph (110 mph).

The Philippines is in national alert due to the uncertain track of Super Typhoon Hagupit that has already caused the world’s biggest evacuation in peacetime with more than half a million persons in southern provinces. The next track of the typhoon still uncertain and it probably would head to the north, preserving the country from further damages, but if it heads toward the northwest, it will touch certainly the Philippines, crossing areas that still recovering from Typhoon Haiyan about 13 months ago.
