I feel SO for those people on Rota. Not only do they have a cat 4 eyewall nailing them but the storm is moving VERY slowly. Even though they are on the south side, the slow movement means very little subtraction of the wind speed.. Flooding also a big deal as well as in Guam.

yea, the rainfall and the wind=not good. Especially since its moving so slow. Hopefully it has a sudden burst of speed and gets on with its track.

Unfortunately, the southern and southeastern eyewall of Chaba sat over the island of Rota for many hours this morning (EDT) and wind max sustained winds of 145 mph, I'm absolutely sure that we're going to hear about a lot of devastation from the island nation of 70,000 people ...

Just now, the eyewall is finally moving away to the NW ...

Remember the Marianas fortunately get hit with such regularity the construction and location of buildings is a lot more apropriate to survive a storm than, say, SW Florida.

Wow! Is this true??

The anemometer must have been damaged or hurricane induced tornado or an associated downburst must have hit the anemometer. Winds were averaging 40-45 G 55-60MPH for hours before the extreme blast of wind occurred.

I think it was a simple encoding error.

Here is the raw METAR ob in question...

Code: Select all

PGSN 221454Z 130130G150KT 1/2SM +RA SQ SCT004 BKN008 OVC018 24/24 A2914 RMK AO2 SLP863 P0035 60163 T02390239 55011 /;

...and the one before it...

Code: Select all

PGSN 221412Z 12030G50KT 1/2SM +RA FEW003 BKN007 OVC011 24/24 A2914 RMK AO2 P0009 /;


It's kinda odd how the sustained winds and gusts both increased by 100 knots...

I just noticed Chaba is now estimated by satellite to be T-7.0, which equates to 140 kts (161 mph...a cat-5 supertyphoon.

Here's the bulletin

Typhoon Tip had a MEASURED 870mb. The 879mb for Chaba is an estimate based upon satellite derived winds.
