All forecasts predict that violent typhoon VONGFONG / Ompong will turn northwards today or early tomorrow morning. It then will again menace Japan who already had been struck by PHANFONE / Neneng.

If forecasts are correct, the Philippine islands will not directly be hit. But typhoon  VONGFONG / Ompong is so big rain that the western outer rain-bands may touch Luzon. The suction of this typhoon is also extremely strong. It already amplifies the western air stream and brings cloudy weather to Mindanao.

We keep an eye on this violent typhoon.
