Typhoon Saola has already been blamed for 14 deaths in the Philippines and now the storm is pushing across extreme western Japan and Taiwan where winds topping 100kph have been recorded in Okinawa and rains over 600mm in the past 24hrs have been seen in North East Taiwan. Damrey will likely make landfall somewhere in North East Taiwan during the early morning hours on the Second. These factors will be leading to a high risk of damaging floods and landslides through the coming days, not only here but also in China where Saola its sister storm Damrey will impact through the end of the week.
Damrey has produced sustained winds in Kagoshima topping 100kph and also has led to one person to go missing in Southern Kyushu. This storm though is cruising at 35kph and has already started to move through the yellow sea on to China.
