Tropical Cyclone Bulletin

Here is the latest Tropical Cyclone Bulletin issued by the Hong Kong Observatory.

All signals were cancelled at 3:40 a.m.

At 4 a.m., Severe Typhoon Rammasun was centred about 540 kilometres west-southwest of Hong Kong (near 21.3 degrees north 109.1 degrees east) and is forecast to move northwest or west-northwest at about 22 kilometres per hour across Beibu Wan towards the coast of Guangxi.

Rammasun is moving across Beibu Wan and will soon make landfall over the coast of Guangxi. As Rammasun gradually moves away from Hong Kong, local winds continue to moderate. Yet there will still be squally showers today.

Since there will be swells, members of the public should remain on the alert.

Super Typhoon RAMMASUN
at 02:00 HKT 19 July 2014

Position: 20.9 N, 109.5 E (about 510 km west-southwest of Hong Kong)
Maximum sustained wind near centre: 185 km/h
Forecast moving direction and speed: northwest or west-northwest, 22 km/h

Notes

  • The symbol low pressure area symbol will be displayed when the tropical cyclone is expected to weaken into a low pressure area or transform into an extratropical low.
  • Past track is in black, forecast track is in red.
  • The accuracies, based on average errors, of the latest analysed and forecast positions are of the order of:
    Analysed Position 30 km
    24-hour forecast position 150 km
    48-hour forecast position 250 km
    72-hour forecast position 350 km

     

  • The centres of the red, blue and grey circles are the forecast positions of the tropical cyclone at different times (as shown at the upper left corner of the figure). The radii of the circles are the respective accuracies.
  • The analysed tropical cyclone position (the symbol tropical cyclone symbol ) is based on Hong Kong Observatory’s hourly bulletin for public derived from the real-time satellite or radar-based positions.
  • The tropical cyclone track, analysed positions and maximum sustained wind near centre are updated every hour. Meanwhile, the webpage will also display other information, including distance and bearing of the tropical cyclone relative to Hong Kong, and forecast moving direction and speed.
  • The past tropical cyclone track, analysed positions and maximum sustained wind near centre may be updated when additional data is received.
  • Short-term erratic departures of the tropical cyclone from the general direction of movement may occur from time to time. These departures are partly due to uncertainties in locating the centre of the tropical cyclone, and partly due to actual short-term variations in the direction and speed of movement of the tropical cyclone itself.

Rammasun has rapidly intensified into a Category 4 Super Typhoon (1-min sustained winds) and is now affecting Hainan and other parts of Southern China. This highly catastrophic storm is one of the strongest cyclones to ever hit Southern China and will affect as much as 20 million people over the next 24 hours.

Watch WxCaster PAT’s latest Video Update below for more in-depth analysis and forecasts for Super Typhoon Rammasun.

China Meteorological Administration (CMA) confirmed landfall at the city of Wenchang on the Northeastern part of Hainan Island. A weather station in this city recorded winds of 180kph to as much as 220kph! The city of Haikou is also reporting sustained typhoon-force winds of up to 130kph and gusts of up to 165kph! Another highly-populated city that this system is affecting is Zhanjiang which is home to nearly 1.2 million people (nearly 7 million people metro-wide).

CCTV has now reported at least one confirmed death due to the storm. 

Radar Image from CMA

rammasun radar hainan

Latest radar image out of Hainan shows the perfectly symmetrical eye now moving into Leizhou Peninsula. Widespread heavy rains

Via CCTV

are affecting much of Hainan and parts of Guangdong Province. Outer rain bands are moving as far away as Hong Kong bringing light to moderate rains in the area. We are expecting anywhere from 200 to as much as 300mm of rainfall over the next 24 hours for Hainan and Leizhou. This will only compound to the already damaging winds in the area. Furthermore, coastal areas will also be dealing with significant storm surge especially along the eastern portions of Leizhou Peninsula.

For the latest radar images and warnings from China, please click HERE (CMA Website)

As many as 40,000 people have been told to evacuate ahead of the storm in the area.

 

Super Typhoon Rammasun will continue moving slowly northwestward and will continue to bring damaging weather conditions across Southern China for the next 12 hours. It will move into the Gulf of Tonkin and will weaken slightly but will still be a significant threat for Guangxi Province and Northern Vietnam.

Storm

Before the storms impact on China Typhoon Glenda (Sawyerean name Gøring, International name Rammasun) struck Metro Manila and is probably the strongest to hit Metro Manila since Typhoon Milenyo of 2006.

The storm has now caused at least 64 deaths, as tallied by the National Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).

In Metro Manila, damage has been extensive. Until now power is yet to be restored in many areas, and Meralco announced of rotating blackout as the power supply in Luzon areas are insufficient to meet demands, due to damaged transmission lines and substations.

The rotating blackouts will ensue until the power supply stabilized, and Meralco has not yet established a definite timetable for this.

The strongest winds pummeled the Metro between 6 to 9 in the morning, where ferocious winds battered the metro. Lots of old trees, some as old as hundred years, fell, and many power lines were knocked out.

Roxas BLVD Via Rappler

 

We’ll continue to have updates on Rammasun as well as on the newest Tropical Storm (Matmo or Bagyong Henry) out in the Philippine Sea. Please stay safe and always heed the warnings of your local officials!

At least one person killed after southern China’s strongest typhoon in four decades: state media

Updated 1937 UTC 18 July 2014

China’s state media says at least one person has been killed after southern China’s strongest typhoon in four decades made landfall in Hainan.

The National Meteorological Centre says Super Typhoon Rammasun ploughed into Wengtian, a town on the northeastern tip of the island, yesterday afternoon.

It was packing winds of up to 216 kilometres an hour.

Ahead of the typhoon’s arrival, hundreds of thousands of people were evacuated and hundreds of flights cancelled.

Super Typhoon Rammasun has already killed at least 54 people in the Philippines and is bringing heavy rains.

 

The Hainan government says it has ordered fishermen back to port while many flights, and all train services, are cancelled.

State television says access to all scenic spots on the island, which styles itself as China’s answer to Hawaii, had been closed, and 30,000 people evacuated from low-lying coastal areas.

Premier Li Keqiang, describing the situation as severe, says people’s lives must be put first.

“Prevent any accidents that may be caused (by the typhoon) and reduce disaster losses as much as possible,” the Hainan government cites Premier Li as saying.

Typhoons are common at this time of year in the South China Sea, picking up strength from the warm waters and dissipating over land.

Flooding across a large swathe of southern China in the past week has already killed at least 34 people.

Preparing for a storm

  • Prepare an emergency kit based on the list here.
  • Make a note of the location of any item not in your kit.

During a Storm

  • Monitor your local emergency broadcaster for updates, warnings and advice
  • While conditions are severe, remain indoors and stay clear of windows
  • Make contact with neighbours and family members to ensure they’re safe and prepared
  • If you’re in your car, don’t drive into water without knowing the strength of the current and depth
  • Slow down, turn on your headlights and be aware of hazards on the roads such as powerlines and trees

After a Storm

  • Stay clear of creeks, drains and other water ways, as there’s a risk of flooding including flash floods
  • Be careful of fallen trees, powerlines and damaged buildings
  • Don’t go sightseeing, you could hamper the efforts of emergency services
  • Check on your neighbours as soon as it’s safe to do so

REMARKS:
240300Z POSITION NEAR 22.5N 111.6E.
TYPHOON 09W (VICENTE), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 110 NM WEST OF HONG 
KONG, HAS TRACKED WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 12 KNOTS OVER THE PAST SIX 
HOURS. TY 09W MADE LANDFALL AT APPROXIMATELY 232000Z AND, AS 
INDICATED IN RADAR AND SATELLITE IMAGERY, HAS WEAKENED AND BECOME 
MORE DISORGANIZED SINCE. MODELS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT THAT TY 09W 
WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK WESTWARD OVER THE ROUGH TERRAIN OF SOUTHERN 
CHINA AND DISSIPATE BY TAU 36 OVER NORTHERN VIETNAM. THIS IS THE 
FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL 
HARBOR HI. THE SYSTEM WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF 
REGENERATION.//
