US declares disaster as super typhoon passes north of Saipan

President Donald Trump is declaring an emergency for the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and ordering the US government to help local authorities respond to a typhoon.

The exceptionally small, tight eye is reminiscent of extreme hurricane Patricia in 2015 - the record holder for the strongest sustained winds for a tropical cyclone, at 345 km/h (215 mph). "Which is almost three times what is needed to be considered rapid intensification".

Maximum sustained winds: 150 miles per hour with gusts up to 185 miles per hour. A tropical cyclone is called a hurricane if it originates in the "North Atlantic, central North Pacific and eastern North Pacific", whereas typhoons occur in the Northwest Pacific.

#Hagibis has intensified by 90 mph in 18 hours - from a tropical storm to a #supertyphoon.

The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) released an animation showing the anti-clockwise direction of the deadly winds, with different colors representing the varying levels of intensity.

NEW: Here's a fresh #Himawari8 infrared animation of #SuperTyphoonHagibis, north #Guam today. Typhoon force winds extend outward from the center up to 50 miles.

The areas are expected to see coastal flooding, according to the Weather Channel.

It is forecast to approach south-central Japan on Saturday morning local time as a typhoon, with winds equivalent to that of a Category 3 hurricane.

It will track between the islands of Anatahan and Sarigan, according to the latest forecast from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. They say the location of Super Typhoon Hagibis could change and will need to be watched closely in the coming days.

The Weather Channel recently reported: "Hagibis will track west-northwestward over very warm ocean water and low wind shear, allowing it to continue strengthening as it tracks over the Northern Mariana Islands on Monday".
