In the next 24- 36 hours, Kalmaegi is forecast to move southwestward at 10- 30 kilometers per hour, and then it is expected to weaken a tropical depression and a low pressure zone respectively. 

On the same day, the Central Steering Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention and Control also sent a public telegraph to provinces from Quang Ninh to Khanh Hoa in order to ask preparedness and necessary measures dealing with the storm and the northeast monsoon.
