Damage seems to extend south to southern Cebu and north to parts of Masbate. The centre of the storm appears to have passed over the city of Ormoc on Leyte, running through the islands on a course of approximately 280° (T). As the typhoon progressed across the Philippines, it appears to have lost some of its force.
