PostSubject: Super Typoon Megi (Category 5)   Mon Oct 18, 2010 3:50 am

I thought I'd start a new thread for the super typhoon megi curently hurtling towards northern Philippines. I'll put all the links to the current sat images/info into this thread over the next hour or so.

To start with, a nice clear google-based map of the projected track with time-stamps (note timestamps are in JST (+9GMT).

Here's a view overlaid with real-time weather data:

A website from a storm chaser on the ground in the Philippines. You can also follow him on Twitter:

Also hourly updates on the typhoon from The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Administration (PAGASA).

And finally, a nice narrative of the savage conditions inside the typhoon, taken from a hurricane hunter aircraft:

Cheers,

Ooops, just realised this should probably be in the Worldwide Weather -> Asia forum. Could a mod please move the thread? Sorry about that, should have read through all available forums before choosing one. Embarassed

Your wish is my command! No prob Graham.

Great info there mate! Just been on the news and it has made landfall. Cat 5? Wow!

I'm going to keep tabs too on this, see if any video appears.

ROFL, thanks Wazza, much appreciated. Trust me to cock things up! Smile Just came across this BBC report a short time ago:

Not a lot of new info in there mind you. Seems like news is slow to get from the remote parts of the country the typhoon has hit.

Great find Wazza! Hi-five to ya! Smile Man that rain was really lashing down.. especially at that point where it was coming off the roof like a waterfall. I would imagine there would be a lot of homes destroyed, given that the construction of some of those dwellings doesn't look very substantial.

Eeek, don't think I would be in my boat in that! That's some storm! Imagine if that veered off and hit Hong Kong! Shocked

Cheers for the Hi-Five-ness Graham!

Hong Kong would be a nightmare if it veered that way. There certainly was a lot of rain in that vid! Being early-ish days of the Typhoon on landfall, I expect we will see a few more videos appearing on the web. And they will naturally be posted here! Very Happy

Megi has now drifted into the north China sea. Latest I heard is she has killed 13 people?

Devistating.

Yeah kinda hits home when you start realising the storm is killing folk. Not good at all, not to mention the path of destruction it's leaving behind. I would imagine the infrastructure will take a bit to rebuild!

Yeah you're right mate - It certainly does put things into perspective. Sad

Another video added to the homepage.
