Typhoon Yutu is now the strongest super typhoon (category 5) since Karen in 1962. It’s now just miles from making landfall on the islands of Tinian & Saipan of the Northern Mariana Islands. An absolute disaster is in the works right now. Wind gusts above 200mph likely.

Kid you take note of those islands this monster tropical cyclone is about to obliterate? I hope the people living on those islands can evacuate from there…
The center of Yutu is now less than 100 miles southeast of the islands of Saipan and Tinian, in the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands which are located about 120 miles north-northeast of Guam.

The intense eyewall of Yutu is now clearly visible from the National Weather Service Doppler radar and Andersen Air Force Base, Guam. There have been numerous lightning strikes within Yutu’s eyewall, indicative of an intensifying tropical cyclone.

Fearing the worst but hoping for the best for the US commonwealths of Tinian and Saipan. All we can do now is pray for the best as the eyewall of Cat. 5 Yutu begins its siege on Saipan and Tinian in what may be their most intense typhoon strike on record.
