- Once a super typhoon, Maysak is now a tropical storm with 70 mph winds
- It could still cause flooding, landslides and other problems in the Philippines
Just a few days ago, Maysak gained super typhoon status thanks to its sustained 150 mph winds. It has since lost a lot of steam as it has spun west in the Pacific Ocean.
It's now classified as a tropical storm, according to the Philippine national weather service, which calls it a different name, Chedeng. It boasts steady winds of more than 70 mph (115 kph) and gusts up to 90 mph as of 5 p.m. (5 a.m. ET) Saturday.
Still, that doesn't mean Maysak won't pack a wallop.
