Red Alert – Typhoon KOPPU/Lando approaching

Typhoon Alert

Red Alert – Typhoon KOPPU/Lando is approaching. The Tropical Depression is not yet a typhoon and we still have enough time to prepare. GDACS issues Red Alert for the Philippines. The typhoon will hit Luzon early next Sunday.

A few minutes ago we got a red typhoon alert from GDACS. The Tropical Depression we reported this morning seems to be a straight runner and will only bend slightly northwards. All agencies predict a Typhoon Cat.4 The JTWC had already traced a forecast track towards Luzon this morning. JMA has joined with wide probability circle going from Bicol up to Cagayan Valley.

Unsecurity on Red Alert – Typhoon KOPPU/Lando

The coming typhoon is still unstable. It may still change direction and intensity. The probability circles of JTWC and JMA are still very large. This time the US-Navy led JTWC and the Japanese JMA forecasts are almost the same. The Japanese are slightly more south.
