Typhoon Kammuri moved west over the Philippines on Tuesday, December 3, bringing high winds and rain to Oriental Mindoro province, some 200 km south of the Metro Manila region.

The storm continued to move westward away from land and into the West Philippines Sea, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
