ASIA Typhoons * Japan, Korea

CHINA -  2 typhoons to hit coastal areas
August 23, 2012  Two powerful typhoons are heading toward China, putting the weather-beaten nation on alert again after four storms have caused landfalls across the country since the start of August.
"Typhoons Tembin and Bolaven may have a combined impact on coastal areas in the coming 10 days," Zhang Chang'an, chief forecaster at the China Meteorological Administration, said on Wednesday.

Both storms are strengthening, with Bolaven expected to be the strongest typhoon to hit China this year if it lands in the country, Zhang said, adding that the storm will bring maximum winds of 220 km/h.
The National Commission on Disaster Reduction issued a typhoon alert on Wednesday, warning authorities to make emergency plans.
Tembin was about 2,000 km from the coast of Zhejiang province on Wednesday, moving at a speed of 5 km/h.

The administration has asked authorities in potential affected areas to set up warning signs in high-risk areas such as construction sites and low-lying areas, and open emergency shelters including schools and stadiums for evacuation of affected people.
The Fujian Meteorological Bureau urged boats to take shelter in ports by Wednesday to avoid possible damage brought by Tembin.

Death toll from S. Korea typhoon rises to 18
August 29, 2012  South Korean rescuers recovered two more bodies near two wrecked Chinese fishing boats, bringing the confirmed death toll from a powerful typhoon to 18.
Typhoon Bolaven -- the strongest to hit the South for almost a decade -- left a trail of death and damage in southwestern and south-central regions of the country.
It drove two Chinese fishing ships aground early Tuesday off the southern island of Jeju, sparking a dramatic rescue operation.

Coastguards wearing wetsuits struggled through high waves and pulled a total of 12 people to safety, and six swam ashore. Eight bodies had been recovered as of Wednesday and seven were still missing, the coastguard in Jeju said.
Dozens of divers are involved in the ongoing search. The coastguard said in a statement it would make "utmost efforts" to account for all the missing.

Seoul (AFP) Sept 3, 2012

A strong typhoon which hit North Korea last week killed 48 people and left more than 50 injured or missing, the country's state news agency said on Monday.

Typhoon Bolaven pounded the Korean peninsula last Tuesday, leaving a trail of death and damage in the two Koreas.

In addition to the casualties, 21,180 people were left homeless by the storm, which destroyed or inundated 6,700 houses, toppled more than 16,730 trees and disabled 880 industrial and public buildings, the North's official Korean Central News Agency said.

Bolaven also damaged at least 50,000 hectares of farmland, ravaging crops in 45,320 hectares of paddy and non-paddy fields, it said.


September 13, 2012
– ASIA – Tropical Storm Sanba exploded in intensity between Sept. 12 and 13, becoming a major Category 4 Typhoon on the Saffir-Simpson Scale. NASA’s Aqua satellite captured infrared data that showed a large area of powerful thunderstorms around the center of circulation, dropping heavy rain over the western North Pacific Ocean. NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over Super Typhoon Sanba on Sept. 13 at 0447 UTC (12:47 a.m. EDT). The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument captured an infrared image of Sanba and found an eye about 20 nautical miles (23 miles/37 km) wide, surrounded by a thick area of strong convection (rising air that forms the thunderstorms that make up the storm) and strong thunderstorms. Forecasters at the Joint Typhoon Warning center noted that the AIRS imagery showed that there was “no banding outside of this ring, consistent with an annular typhoon.” On Sept. 13 at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT), Sanba’s maximum sustained winds were near 135 knots (155 mph/250 kmh). Sanba had higher gusts into the Category 5 typhoon category. The Saffir-Simpson scale was slightly revised earlier in 2012, so a Category 4 typhoon/hurricane has maximum sustained winds from 113 to 136 knots (130 to 156 mph /209 to 251 kmh). A Category 5 typhoon’s maximum sustained winds begin at 137 knots (157 mph /252 kmh). Sanba was located about 600 nautical miles (690 miles/1,111 km) south of Kadena Air Base, near 16.8 North latitude and 129.5 East longitude. It was moving to the north at 9 knots (10.3 mph/16.6 kmh) and generating wave heights of 40 feet. Sanba is expected to continue on a north-northwesterly track through the western North Pacific and move through the East China Sea, passing close to Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, Japan on Sept. 15. –Physics

Typhoon Sanba heading for Okinawa USAFB, SKorea, 155 mph winds.
As of early Saturday local time, Sanba typhoon had sustained winds of 145 mph, the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane.
Sanba's movement to the north and northwest is expected to continue through at least Saturday.
The projected path brings Sanba close to Okinawa, Japan, by Saturday night, local time. While the island is well-prepared for typhoons, damage, power outages and flooding are likely.
While Sanba is likely to continue a slow weakening trend, it still brings great danger to lives and property.

Deadly tropical storm Son-Tinh batters Philippines
27 October 2012

Tropical storm Son-Tinh is forecast to strengthen into a typhoon as it moves towards Vietnam.
At least 24 people have been killed as a result of tropical storm Son-Tinh in the Philippines, the government says.
The death toll was updated after casualty reports were received from the central and southern Philippines, officials said.

About half of the victims were killed by landslides and by drowning, while others were hit by debris or electrocuted.
More than 15,000 people are sheltering in government evacuation centres.
At least six people remain missing.
The Philippines see between 15 and 20 major storms or typhoons each year, that occur mainly during the rainy season in the summer and autumn.
The storm is heading westward towards Vietnam at 22km/h (14mph) per hour and is forecast to strengthen into a typhoon.

Typhoon Son-Tinh heads for Vietnam, China
28 October 2012
 More than 80,000 people in South China's Hainan province have been relocated following the arrival of Typhoon Son-Tinh, which has brought gales and downpours to the region since Saturday.
The typhoon also brought heavy rains to the cities of Beihai, Qinzhou, Fangchenggang, Chongzuo, Yulin and Nanning on Sunday. Water levels on rivers in the worst-hit cities of Beihai, Qinzhou and Fangchenggang have risen significantly.
Meteorologists said the government should call fishing boats back to harbors and advise people to stay off the water for the time being.
The Guangxi observatory has warned tourism departments and aquafarmers to take preventative measures to mitigate the storm's impact. Forum Index -> EARTH, Quakes, Weather
