Maybe Palapag, N Samar then lash all the way to Bulusan in Sorsogon. Isn't there a nearby volcano in that town sir??

Yeah, Bulusan is there.

I'm sorry but I think JTWC is out to lunch the entire time of Melor's existence. Its appearance right now is the most impressive it has ever had since it developed, IMO. JMA just upped the intensity to 95kts, I'm pretty sure its equivalent 1-min wind speed is not 110 knots.

JMA's 95 kt is their T6.0 intensity, which correlates to 115 kt.

Looks like the southern edge of the eye is just skimming the north Samar coast.

Not surprised at all. Last Super Nino back in 1997 also produced a typhoon but much stronger than Melor and in December that devastated Guam...

Dvorak really had a hard time with Melor. It truly can't be relied on especially with a small intense typhoon like this...

Currently battering Sorsogon. This track will take it over water earlier and much longer. Could see some possible reintensification...

Now, Melor is over Burias and Ticao Islands of Masbate. No communication with N. Samar but some videos and images are coming out from Catarman showing destruction over social media.

Melor at time of landfall over Sorsogon. I'd give it 130 knots slightly higher than a ADT of 6.5 or 127 knots based on a well defined eye surrounded by very deep convection...

EC has been predicting this to happen for the past several days.

The JT is far too fast with the weakening. Ensembles are showing this remaining intense for 3 more days

I guess it makes sense considering how much water there is within The Philippines and the track Melor has taken, but it still messes with my head somewhat seeing this kind of presentation this deep into The Philippines.

I definitely feel like Melor hit super-typhoon status somewhere right before landfall, it looked way too organized and intense to just be a 6.5.
