Typhoon Pepeng (Parma) remained almost stationery over Luzon sea as new Typhoon Quedan pulls it back. Typhoon Quedan (Melor) maintained its strength as it moves towards Okinawa, Southern Japan. At 10AM today, Typhoon Quedan was located at 890 km East Northeast of Basco, Batanes (23.3°N, 131.3°E). According to PAGASA, no Public Storm Warning Signals for typhoon Quedan (Melor) has been raised yet because this disturbance is still too far to affect any part of the country. Typhoon Pepeng continues to bring massive damage to rice fields and fishponds in the Cagayan region.

As of 11:00 AM, Northern Cagayan, Babuyan Island, Calayan Island, Apayao and Ilocos Norte are still under Public Storm Signal No. 3.
