Tropical cyclones do not necessarily move along the lines
connecting the centers of probability circles.
1KT(knot) = 1.852 km/h = 0.5144 m/s
1NM(nautical mile) = 1.852 km
Songda was upgraded to super typhoon (category 5 ) status at 3 p.m., around the same time Okinawa entered Tropical Cyclone Condition of Readiness 3,
meaning destructive winds of 58 mph or greater are expected within 48 hours. If you haven’t cleaned up around the office or home and made that
commissary, gas station and ATM run, Friday’s the time to do so. Expect long lines, so plan your trips early.
Onset of 58-mph gusts, 9 a.m. Saturday.
Onset of sustained 58-mph winds, noon Saturday.
Maximum wind gusts expected, 132 mph between noon and midnight Saturday.
Subsiding of 58-mph gusts forecast for 6 a.m. Sunday.
