A major Super Typhoon known as Vongfong is headed for Japan with sustained winds of 150 and wind gusts of 190 and it's expected to increase in strength as it crosses over Warmer water in the Pacific.



"It's safe to say Vongfong is the strongest storm on Earth since Haiyan last year," said Michael Lowry, storm specialist for The Weather Channel.

Vongfong is the fifth super typhoon to threaten the Pacific this year. There were also five super typhoons in 2012 and five in 2013, including the deadly Super Typhoon Haiyan, which was one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded. Late July through October is peak typhoon season in the Western Pacific.

Super Typhoon Vongfong is currently a Category 4 tropical cyclone but could grow into an even more powerful Category 5 storm by Wednesday as it lumbers over warm water, which will fuel its powerful spin. In the Western Pacific, tropical storms become super typhoons when their winds top 150 mph (241 kilometers per hour). Super typhoons are equivalent to Category 4 or 5 hurricanes.


This is one to watch for. What says ATS?

"Super Typhoon" sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie.

Is extreme weather now the norm it sure seems like it. Japan sure has been taking a beating this century.

Best wishes to them.

That's what I am thinking....These Super Storms are becoming the norm. We are constantly breaking records every year now for heat, cold, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, and everything weather related. Besides the weather, viruses are really hitting us hard this year. Back on topic, these Super Typhoons are just another ominous sign of the times.

Wow looks like they better batten down the hatches there. I do hope people will be safe when it hits and I certainly will be keeping an eye on this as well just to see how powerful it will develop as well.

You are making a connection there that is a manufactured one because it aids a particular concept that some wish to push on to the rest of us.

Say, did you read today that the Antarctic ice cover is the largest ever?

Oh? that fact doesn't count?
