Sounds like a nasty system Orebound. Cant wait to see some footage when you get it up. I always find it crazy watching these things wind up on the sat loops and form that tight eye feature and then realise that most times its happening you will be there somewhere in the world sitting under it waiting for it to arrive. Keep it up. Severe weather junky to the max. I wonder if there is anyone out there that chases these severe systems as much as you.

Haha I'm sure there are plenty out there who go much harder than I do mate. you only need look to the States each year to see people from every corner of the globe converging in huge numbers to check out some severe weather. I simply use the weather as a good excuse for a holiday lol

Still a bit of a persistent feature in the models depicting a circulation around the Philippines/South China Sea next week, whether or not it would have enough time to develop too significantly is the question but obviously worth watching. It's been quite a slow start to the season in terms of numbers but I'm sure that will rectify itself in the coming months.

Tropical Cyclone Warnings
Bulletin issued at 07:45 HKT 01/Aug/2016

Tropical Cyclone Bulletin

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

The Standby Signal, No. 1 is in force.

This means that a tropical cyclone now centred within about 800 kilometres of Hong Kong may affect us.

At 8 a.m., Typhoon Nida was estimated to be about 530 kilometres east-southeast of Hong Kong (near 20.2 degrees north 118.8 degrees east) and is forecast to move northwest or west-northwest at about 25 kilometres per hour edging closer to the coast of Guangdong and intensifying gradually.

According to the present forecast track, Nida will move rather fast towards the coast of Guangdong and will be rather close to Hong Kong tonight to Tuesday morning. Winds over Hong Kong will strengthen significantly around dusk today. The Observatory will consider issuing the Strong Wind Signal No. 3 around noon.

The weather will deteriorate rapidly after sunset. There will be squalls, heavy rain and rough seas. There may be flooding in low-lying areas. If Nida directly hits Hong Kong or skirts just to the south of the territory, Hong Kong will be more severely affected. In particular, if the storm surge brought about by Nida coincides with the high tide on Tuesday morning, the threat of flooding will further increase. Members of the public shall take all precautionary measures as soon as possible.

(Precautionary Announcements with No. 1 Signal)

1. People living in wooden huts and in low-lying areas should take necessary precautions against strong winds and flooding.

2. Some precautions against damage should be taken now, gutters and drains should be cleared of obstructions. Hinges, bolts, locks and shutters of windows and doors should be checked.

3. All small vessels including low power vessels and fishing vessels in open sea should seek shelter as soon as possible. Please take any precautions necessary for small vessels and secure them properly with moorings.

4. Since there will be swells, you are advised to stay away from the shoreline and not to engage in water sports.

5. Those who have definite duties during a tropical cyclone should now remain on call or contact their control centres from time to time.

6. If you are planning to visit Guangdong, Macau, any of the off-shore islands or remote parts of Hong Kong, you are reminded that changes in weather may affect your plans.

7. Engineers, architects and contractors should make sure that scaffoldings, hoardings and other temporary structures are secured.

8. Owners of shop signs, advertisements and TV aerials which overhang public thoroughfares or which are situated on tops of buildings should make sure that the fastenings and framework of these structures are secured.

9. Listen to radio, watch TV or browse the Hong Kong Observatory's web site for information on the tropical cyclone.

Tropical Cyclone Warnings
Bulletin issued at 11:45 HKT 01/Aug/2016

Tropical Cyclone Bulletin

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

The Strong Wind Signal, No. 3 is in force.

This means that winds with mean speeds of 41 to 62 kilometres per hour are expected.

At noon, Typhoon Nida was estimated to be about 450 kilometres east-southeast of Hong Kong (near 20.5 degrees north 118.1 degrees east) and is forecast to move northwest or west-northwest at about 25 kilometres per hour, edging closer to the coast of Guangdong and intensifying gradually.

Nida is moving rather fast towards the coast of Guangdong. While winds in Hong Kong in early afternoon will not be too strong, winds will start to strengthen significantly this evening. The Observatory will consider issuing the Number 8 Gale or Storm Signal between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. today.

According to the present forecast track, Nida will be rather close to Hong Kong tonight to Tuesday morning. The weather will deteriorate rapidly after sunset. There will be squalls, heavy rain and rough seas. There may be flooding in low-lying areas. If Nida directly hits Hong Kong or skirts just to the south of the territory, Hong Kong will be more severely affected. In particular, if the storm surge brought about by Nida coincides with the high tide on Tuesday morning, the threat of flooding will further increase. Members of the public shall complete all precautionary measures as soon as possible.

(Precautionary Announcements with No. 3 Signal)

1. You are advised not to delay in taking all precautions to protect your home or property. Make sure now that all loose objects are secure. Porch furniture, flower pots and other objects likely to be blown away should be taken indoors. Check again and make sure all windows and doors can be securely locked.

2. Storm water drains should be cleared of leaves and rubbish, this applies particularly to dwellers in low-lying areas.

3. Since there are swells, you are advised to stay away from the shoreline and not to engage in water sports.

4. People should avoid walking or working in areas exposed to gales and squalls. Drivers using highways and flyovers should be alert to violent gusts.

5. Engineers, architects and contractors are again reminded that all scaffoldings, hoardings and temporary buildings should be secured.

6. Small craft owners should now complete arrangements for the safety of their boats.

7. Fishing vessels not yet in typhoon shelters should seek shelter without delay. Check again that all deck fittings are firmly fastened. If available, heavy anchors should be prepared and used in addition to regular anchors.

8. Listen to radio, watch TV or browse the Hong Kong Observatory's web site for information on the tropical cyclone.

Tropical Cyclone Warnings
Bulletin issued at 20:45 HKT 01/Aug/2016

Tropical Cyclone Bulletin

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

The No. 8 Northwest Gale or Storm Signal is in force.

This means that winds with mean speeds of 63 kilometres per hour or more are expected from the northwest quarter.

At 9 p.m., Typhoon Nida was centred about 220 kilometres east-southeast of Hong Kong (near 21.8 degrees north 116.2 degrees east) and is forecast to move northwest or west-northwest at about 25 kilometres per hour towards the vicinity of the Pearl River Estuary.

Local winds further strengthened after dusk. In the past hour, the maximum sustained winds recorded at Tate's Cairn and Waglan Island were 67 and 48 kilometres per hour with maximum gusts 93 and 60 kilometres per hour respectively.

According to the present forecast track, Nida will be rather close to Hong Kong tonight to tomorrow morning. Its centre will skirt within 100 km to the northeast of the territory. The Number 8 Gale or Storm Signal is expected to persist tonight and most of the time tomorrow morning. Squalls, heavy rain and rough seas will progressively affect Hong Kong. Storm surge brought by Nida may cause flooding or sea water intrusion in some low-lying areas tomorrow morning.

(Precautionary Announcements with No. 8 Signal)

1. Complete all precautions in your home. Lock all windows and doors, fit bars into position and insert reinforced shutters and gates if they are available. Adhesive tape fixed to large window-panes in exposed positions will reduce damage by broken glass. Storm water drains should be cleared of leaves and rubbish.

2. Do not stand near windows on the exposed side of your home. Move all furniture and valuables away from these areas. Make sure you have a safe place to shelter, should windows be broken.

3. Since seas are rough and there are swells, you are advised to stay away from the shoreline and not to engage in water sports.

4. Owners of neon signs are reminded that they should now arrange for the electricity supply to their signs to be cut off.

5. Please listen to radio or watch TV for the latest weather information broadcast. You can also browse the Hong Kong Observatory's web site for the information.

Landfall occurred early this morning about 40km east of Hong Kong
This spared Hong Kong from serious damage
Close call...

The system is slowly weakening and moving further inland into mainland China. This link has details for mainland China

Yes Meranti ended up in that elite group of sub-900hpa apex cyclones in the NW Pacific and was the second super typhoon we have intercepted up here in Taiwan this season after the amazing Nepartak back in July.

Thankfully the inner core stayed just off the coast as it passed our location on the southern tip of Taiwan but the secondary outer eyewall gave the joint a bit of a touch-up.

Definitely not in the league of Nepartak in terms of the absolute violence that thing produced but still a very nasty storm and well worth the chase.

Some video shot from our location in Kenting with James and Mark from EarthUncut TV

Currently heading back up to Taipei and looking at options for chasing Typhoon Malakas on the Ryukyu Islands tomorrow.

So good to see and hear what it's like in daylight. Awesome capture. Even though it passed just south of you I reckon its probably a good thing it did. That Typhoon was nasty. Keep it up Orebound and look forward to seeing what you can capture over the next few months and the Aussie TC season. Go hard. Not sure that anyone else in the world goes as hard as you chasing severe weather. Great to see you nailing it every time.

Well done on the chase. I wonder how those on the island (itbayat) that went through the eye faired. 3,000 people there apparently.

Certainly an amazing storm .It cut power to a staggering 1.65 Million homes in China. The strongest typhoon to hit mainland China since at least 1949.

Seems likely the Philippines will get hammered a couple of times in the next week. Double Typhoon one after the other. The First seems to continue on into Vietnam and the second onto mainland China. Interesting times ahead.
