7/06/2014 — Japan to be hit by Super Typhoon “NEOGURI” – Category 5 storm

A very strong tropical low pressure system formed over the West Pacific near Guam, and has now progressed into a full Category 5 storm, winds up to 150mph+ .

This storm will be causing serious damage to the outlying Japanese Islands, and (if it maintains it strength) will be causing some serious issues on the mainland of Japan itself.

The storm is taking a path North by Northeast, which will be bringing Typhoon Neoguri over the Southern Japanese islands (areas like Okinawa) at Category 5 strength.

The storms track (as seen above) will eventually be bringing a forecasted Category 3 typhoon over the main Island of Japan before going back out into the North Pacific.

Professionals are now referring to the storm as “SUPER-Typhoon” Neoguri:
