Pictures coming out from Guangdong. Extremely rare tornadoes cause massive damage.
7 dead so far.

Very impressed with the preparation for this storm. Imagine a typhoon that was forecast to only make landfall only as a Cat 1 but explosively intensifies to a Cat 4?

If this had hit the U.S, that's billion of dollars in loss but this only +24 million and a very low death toll.

People here are so used to typhoons that you see them roaming and traveling during the typhoon with power majorily on. In the U.S, it's all sheer panic...

Zhejiang, population 7 million, just got the eyewall...

Its the biggest news story no one is talking about.



Well it's ok. We can handle it without the hype.

Western Pacific Weather reported a 131 kt windspeed (probably a gust, although it does not specify) was recorded in China as Typhoon Mujigae made landfall.

Credit to JTWC for upping the intensity to a category 4 115 knots, although i think it's stronger than that...

How about JMA? only 70 knots 10 min when converted to 1 min is equal to only a Cat 1 hurricane/typhoon. Very poor decision with a rapidly intensifying typhoon with a well defined eye.

Mujigae is now the costliest tropical cyclone of 2015 thus far. Economic cost in China now estimated at $4.2 billion.

It's the strongest storm to strike the province of Guangdong in the month of October on record.

Found this terrifying video from Zhanjiang. Imagine preparing for just a minimal typhoon that suddenly rapidly intensifies to a Cat 4 without notice.
