Asia facing another back-to-back typhoon threat

August 21, 2012 ASIAIf the typhoon turns as forecast, its eye may make landfall on Taiwan’s east coast Thursday, according to the weather bureau. As of 8 a.m., the eye of Tembin was located 620 kilometers southeast of Eluanbi, off the southernmost tip of Taiwan, moving at a speed of 8 km per hour in a northerly direction. Tembin, the 14th storm of the Pacific typhoon season, is packing winds of 119 kph, with gusts of up to 155 kph, and has a radius of 150 km, the bureau said. The typhoon is likely to move toward Taiwan on a northwesterly track Tuesday and take a more westerly turn Wednesday, the bureau said. A sea warning for Tembin is likely to be issued Tuesday morning and areas around Taiwan should be prepared for strong winds and heavy rain Wednesday to Friday, the bureau warned. Meanwhile, a tropical depression that formed near Guam on Sunday was still located 2,300 km from Taiwan as of 8 a.m. Monday and it may strengthen into a tropical storm over the next two days, the bureau said. –China Post

    In my 44 years I have never experienced double typhoons in the Philippines, only single ones at a time, until this year. This is the 2nd or 3rd time there is a double typhoon, there was even a triple typhoon if i’m not mistaken. Another “2012″ phenomena?
