Typhoon Quiel was noted to have maximum sustained winds of 150 kph near the center with gustiness of up to 185 kph with 10 provinces now under Public Storm Signal No. 3.

This includes Cagayan, Isabela, Northern Aurora, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Ifugao, Mt. Province, Kalinga, Apayao and Abra. Almost of them were affected by the recent typhoon Pedring.

Meanwhile, Public Storm Signal No. 2 was raised in Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Benguet, La Union, the rest of Aurora, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, Calayan Group of Islands and Babuyan Group of Islands.
