Typhoon Chanthu is expected to hit Vietnam and Taiwan on Saturday, September 22. The storm is expected to bring strong winds and heavy rain, with the potential for flooding in some areas.
Tropical Storm Chanthu is set to strike Vietnam and Taiwan. It has been forecasted that the wind speed will be around 100 miles per hour.
The world is preparing for yet another climate disaster. It would be Super Typhoon Chanthu and Conson, which are expected to hit Vietnam and Taiwan. The former is anticipated to deliver Taiwan severe winds and heavy rains. People are preparing for the impending storms.
Rains and floods would befall Vietnam as a result of the latter. In advance of Typhoon Chanthu, Taiwan has issued marine and land advisories for certain areas. This is one of the most powerful storms we’ve seen this year. It would have sustained winds of 160 miles per hour, causing travel issues.
This is equivalent to a Category 5 hurricane in the Atlantic. Chanthu developed on September 6 and quickly strengthened to become the second storm of the year to attain super typhoon status, according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center.
According to CNN, it will travel over the Philippines’ Luzon island, causing heavy rain, strong gusts, and coastal flooding. These may cause damage to infrastructure such as highways, bridges, electricity supply networks, mobile phone networks, and so on, as well as wreak havoc on people’s lives.
Typhoon Chanthu-related forecasts
Typhoon Chanthu, popularly known as Kiko, is expected to make landfall over Batan and Sabtang in Batanes, according to the Philippine meteorological service. Maximum wind speeds would be approximately 133 miles per hour, with gusts up to 164 miles per hour.
In areas of Luzon, the prediction warns of heavy rain and typhoon-force winds.
A forecaster from the Central Weather Bureau predicts heavy rain over the southern portion of the island. In Taiwan’s mountainous terrain, this may result in flash floods and mudslides. As the storm approaches the southern shore, the storm’s strength may decrease.
Tropical Storm Conson would pose a danger to areas in the South China Sea. Thousands of troops have already been deployed in preparation for the invasion. The government has issued orders for ships to stay in port and has prepared evacuation preparations. Conson will be the sixth hurricane to hit the United States this year.
A super typhoon is defined as a storm with sustained winds of 137 mph or higher.
Typhoon Chanthu, according to the Philippine Meteorological Agency, has the potential to become a category 5 “super typhoon.” At its core, steady winds of 134 mph would prevail, with gusts up to 165 mph. A super typhoon is defined as a storm with sustained winds of 137 mph or higher. Authorities have warned that the weather may result in catastrophes such as flash floods and landslides. Onshore, there may be high gusts and dangerous waves. Mariners have been urged to take appropriate measures, such as staying in port until the dangers have passed. A typhoon warning has been issued by Taiwan’s Central Weather Bureau.
There is no distinction between a typhoon and a hurricane.
Weather disruptions include typhoons and hurricanes.
Hurricanes and typhoons are the same thing. They are known as hurricanes in the North Atlantic, Central North Pacific, and Eastern North Pacific. A minor typhoon hit the Philippines’ eastern coast, knocking off electricity in several areas. Every year, the Philippines is subjected to the wrath of typhoons and storms. It’s part of the Pacific’s “Ring of Fire.” As a result, it is vulnerable to natural catastrophes. The area is prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
