The first indications of its existence were broadcasted to all ships at 9 p.m. on October 14th. At 2 p.m. of the same day, it was announced to the eastern stations of the Visayas and northeastern Mindanao as a depression or typhoon located to the east of northern Mindanao, moving WNW. The typhoon moved to the east of San Bernardino Strait, causing winds of force 8 to the U.S.T. Meigs. At 2 p.m. it was located about 60 miles NE of Catanduanes; at the same time Virac reported a barometric minimum of 743.0 mm. with west winds of force 8 and the U.S.S. Henderson reported winds of force 10. At 10 p.m. on October 15th, the typhoon passed very close to, and by the north of, Daet, where the barometer fell to 732 mm. and winds of force 10 were experienced. At 3 a.m. of October 16th the tyhoon passed almost over Infanta, Tayabas, a short distance south of it, causing the barometer to fall to 727.7 mm. with winds of hurricane force. In less than three hours the center of the storm moved from Infanta to the north of Manila, at a velocity of translation of about 20 miles an hour at least. At Manila, from 6 to 8 p.m., the barometers were still rising very slightly: at 9 p.m. the barometers began decidedly to fall, with winds blowing steadily from NW to W. Without any change in the direction of the wind, the barometers began to fall rapidly at 3 a.m. until the barometric minimum 740 mm. was reached at 5.30 a.m. The lowest point of the barometric minimum was very sharp. At 6 a.m. a decided rise of the barometer took place, and by 10 a.m. the barometers had risen to 753 mm. The maximum force of the wind experienced in Manila at the Observatory was 57.0 miles per hour. At Manila, typhoon signals were hoisted in the following order: No. 1 at 8.10 a.m. on October 15th; No. 4 at 1.40 a.m. on October 16th; No. 7 at 4.35 a.m. on October 16th and No. 5 at 6.25 a.m. on October 16th.

This typhoon formed east of Yap. Taking a WNW direction, it approached the Philippines on the 19th. At 6 a.m. on October 20th the typhoon was in Camarines Sur. Naga hoisted typhoon signal No. 7 and experienced one of the worst floods in its history. Passing close to, and north of, Calabanga, the typhoon traversed San Miguel Bay, the Ragay Gulf, the Bondoc Peninsula south of New Aloneros and north of Catamnan, Tayabas Bay, the southernmost part of the province of Batangas, the Verde Island Passage and entered the China Sea close to Lubang Island. The destruction wrought by this typhoon was due more to heavy rains than to strong winds. All rice fields within 10 kilometers from Naga were under a meter of water for over a week. The crop was a total loss. After a survey of the provinces of Laguna, Tayabas and Camarines Sur, it was estimated that damages to crops, roads, bridges and buildings in the three provinces of Camarines Sur, Tayabas and Laguna amounted to four million pesos. In Camarines Sur the greatest calamity was the flood of Naga and the loss of the rice crop. In Tayabas and Laguna the greatest loss was due to the ruin of the flowers and young nuts, setting back the productivity of the coconut trees at least one year and depriving the farmers of the income of millions of palm trees.

At Lucban the rainfall of the days 14, 15 and 16 of November amounted to 860.8 mm. Sixty-six persons were reported drowned in Mauban and 19 in Sampaloc; at the end of the year, 27 persons were still unaccounted for at Mauban and 2 at Sampaloc. A flight in an amy hydroplane enabled a rapid survey of the region to be made and showed clearly that the loss of life at Mauban was not due to any tidal wave, nor to the force of the winds, but to torrential rains lasting 18 hours, over the wide watershed of the two rivers, Maapon and Bato, that flow close to Mauban. In some places of the town the water of the river rose two meters and a half over the mean level. The current was reported to have been very swift and overwhelming. A rather long relative calm was observed at Infanta; the winds that prior to the calm ranged between forces 8 and 12 subsided considerably indicating a remarkable decrease in the intensity of the storm. Still moving NW or WNW, the typhoon entered the valley of Central Luzon as a depression, gained energy in the China Sea and moved towards the west of Batanes and towards the Loochoos. The barometric minimum at Laoang was 721.37 mm.

Truk, south of Yap, Guiuan, south of Tacloban, NE end of Panay, south of Odiongan, Mindoro, Puerto Galera, Paracels
This typhoon apparently formed on the 24th of November near Truk, passed close to the south of Yap and moving over 17 miles per hour in a WNW direction, it struck Guiuan on the morning of the 29th. Guiua´s barometric minimum was 724.8 mm. and the wind reached full hurricane force. The storm passed close to the south of Tacloban, causing the barometer to fall to 727.2 mm. and gave rise to an unprecedented flood. Continuing its WNW course, the typhoon reached the NE end of Panay, changed then its direction to NW, passed very close to the south of Odiongan, traversed Mindoro and entered the China Sea near Puerto Galea and filled up over the Paracels. The damage done to Leyte, Tablas and Mindoro was considerable.
