(Worthy News) – Typhoon Chanthu remained a formidable storm Thursday over the Philippine Sea despite slightly weakening and no longer being considered a super typhoon, AccuWeather forecasters said.
As of Thursday evening, local time, Chanthu’s outer rain bands had already begun to impact northern portions of the Philippines. Chanthu was tracking to the west-northwest at a speed of 12 mph, according to the Japanese Meteorological Agency. Chanthu’s 10-minute average sustained winds were 120 mph, meaning it was the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.
The Joint Typhoon Warning Center designated Chanthu as a super typhoon on Wednesday based on its one-minute average sustained wind speed. The first storm of the season to achieve super typhoon status was Super Typhoon Surigae, which roared to life in mid-April. [ Source: UPI (Read More…) ]
