Typhoon 1601 is now a "monster"
Chinese data says the central pressure is 910HPa
forecasts are showing force 18 winds (65m/s) approaching Taiwan for very late Thursday / early Friday.

JMA has the violent classification
or as we say in Australia this is now Category 5

Latest update from Chinese website:
2016年第01号超强台风尼伯特(Nepartak) 7月6日11时,风速68米/秒,移速30公里/小时,东经129.30,北纬19.00,气压905百帕,近中心最大风力18级

At 11am Chinese time (1pm Brisbane time)
68m/s
located near 129.3E 19.0S
905 HPa
Beaufort force 18 winds

Interaction with Taiwan will significantly weaken the system before 2nd landfall in China. Depending on the final trajectory there may be a significant impact on Shanghai

I hear there are a few chasers over there. Josh from icyclone, James Reynolds from Typhoon Fury and good ole Orebound from Darwin/Wzone. Spoke to Orebound just before and he is on the road currently getting into position on the Central Eastern coast of Taiwan. Should be some crazy footage and pics coming out of there. Possible night crossing again so could be a tad scary CAT 5 roaring down on them. Heard a few comments that this may well be the strongest system in the world this year. Sub 900hpa. Will be hard to beat at that strength but still early days and the Western Pacific pumps out the gnarly super typhoons on a pretty regular basis from now on.

Yeah we ran into James earlier today up near our initial location at Chenggong.

Anyway, just a sit and wait game now with after spending the day running up and down the coast doing reconnoissance of different locations within the likely landfall area. As it stands we have tentatively settled on a spot about 20km or so to the north of Taitung City but I'm also mindful of a possible twitch to the right as was the case with the one chased up here last year and also the straight line option straight into Taitung. I'll leave the final decision until as late as is possible tonight but at the moment I'm happy with this location as it has some spectacular ocean views and is extremely safe. Also wanting to keep right front of this one if possible.

Location where blue pin is dropped...

Time to grab a few hours sleep before the show.

Good luck Orebound. Hope you get smashed by 280km/hr winds, big 12metre waves crash on your doorstep, trees get ripped out of the ground and smashed all over the place and that you survive to tell us the story. Weather junky I am. haha. Stay safe Taiwan. No doubt it has seen it all to often in the past.

From the Coordinates of the crossing point I think Orebounds Hotel was 1.1kms from that point so fair enough to say he got smack bang in the eye. I guess if Orebound ever wants to come to Broome for a cyclone, especially my house at least i know then we will get hit. Cyclone magnet that bloke. Well done and look forward to seeing some pics and video. With the crossing in the early dawn hours it should be a sight.

Yes he has made a habit of nailing them that's for sure. He had some trouble getting out last time and I'd say the eastern coastal route will be closed again.

Yeah that 35 degree 90% humidity, 27 degree dew points, no power, no aircon, no running water, no cold bourbon. Typhoon Orebound will hit CAT 5 soon no doubt. lol. Hope everyone is OK in Taiwan. Nasty system to go through.

Yes, Nepartak was absolutely one of the most intense typhoons we have chased in recent years and even this early in the season it is hard to imagine us finding one stronger but that's the thing about the Westpac........it never ceases to throw up one better!

South China Sea is starting to look a little interesting into next week in terms of a system threatening Hong Kong but it's obviously way too early to take too seriously at this stage but we are certainly keeping a close eye on any potential developments from a chase perspective.

Aiming to continue going after any significant Westpac systems atleast until the damned Atlantic basin decides to wake from it's decade long slumber and gives us a reason to get back over to the US........which i'm quietly confident will happen this season! poke

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.

Yes mate it's shaping up to be a very interesting week.

As you know we are currently on location in Baler covering Typhoon Sarika alongside James Reynolds but we are all keeping a very close eye on the development of TS Haina further to east with most of the intensity modelling depicting an extremely violent typhoon approach northern Luzon and the Batanes later in the week.

In the short term however we have an intensifying Typhoon Sarika approaching quite quickly now and expected to cross the coast somewhere in the vicinity of here in the next 8hrs or so. Conditions currently almost perfectly calm with light rain.

Gee Orebound. If you stayed in Baler you would have probably seen the eye. Good luck mate hope you are safe. Look forward to the report. CAT 4 in the end. Next one looks likely to go the whole way. Two typhoons in 4 days. Go hard!!

Yeah once we decided to make the push back through the mountains from Dingalan yesterday morning we were pretty much committed to Baler and were happy to be so, the typhoon appeared to be behaving itself nicely in regards to steer so there weren't too many concerns that we weren't in the right place. Incidentally, it was almost 12 months to the day since we chased Typhoon Koppu here in Baler and James had chased one here a few years earlier so we were both pretty familiar with the lay of the land.

As for Sarika, she definitely kept us guessing there for a bit. Ended up being an extremely small area of hurricane force stuff confined much closer to the eye then IR imagery was leading us to believe. Perhaps one of the thinnest eyewall incursions either of us had encountered previously. Even when trackers had the storm located as close as 20km to our east we were experiencing only marginal gale force stuff. The hurricane force winds came hard and fast literally minutes before a brief incursion into the eye followed by a sudden shift to southerly winds which lasted perhaps 15 mins at most. All up less than 30 mins of the nasty stuff.

In regards to Haima, guidance is still a little mixed in terms of extended tracks and as such we are currently looking at several options.

The Philippines is in the firing line again with Super Typhoon Nock-ten destined to make landfall tomorrow tonight.

It is very impressive how the North Western Pacific area can generate these typhoons in any month of the year while the likes of the Coral Sea basin has trouble putting together a rain squall at the height of the season.

This is the strongest system this late in the year in 60 years or so. So it's a fairly unique storm, even for that part of the world.
