Typhoon Nepartak

Typhoon Nepartak has been upgraded from a Tropical Storm to a Typhoon Cat.1. It is moving fast at 30 km/h towards Taiwan. Only the most northern islands of the Batanes group are within the storm warning zone.

The track forecasts for the next 2 days do not differ much. The US JTWC lays most east and the Hong Kong Observatory’s track is most west and forecasts that Typhoon Nepartak will hit Taiwan.
