Wind condition

Meanwhile, the wind condition is 20 to 30 kilometers per hour, while coastal areas will be light to moderate.

“Magamping lang ang mga gagmay na sakyanang pandagat during thunderstorm labi na og matunong sa kadagatan kay naay chance mukalit ug kusog ang hangin,” Quiblat said.

(Small sea vessels should be careful during thunderstorm especially if this will happen in the seas because there will be a chance that there will be sudden surges of wind.)
