Dangerous Super Typhoon Trami to threaten Taiwan, Japan this week

The latest tropical cyclone in the West Pacific rapidly strengthened over the weekend and became Super Typhoon Trami on Monday.

The powerful cyclone is currently equal to a Category 4 major hurricane in the Atlantic or East Pacific oceans.

Additional strengthening is possible in the coming days and Trami could produce w inds equal to a Category 5 hurricane by Tuesday.

Trami Update 9/24


Trami will remain over the open ocean through at least Thursday, allowing the storm to remain a dangerous and powerful super typhoon.

Due to the slow movement of the storm, communities will have several days to prepare for possible impacts or evacuations from Trami, which could produce life-threatening conditions hundreds of miles from its center.

"Residents and anyone with interests across Taiwan and Japan need to keep an eye on this storm," AccuWeather Meteorologist Rob Richards said.

Anyone in the potential path of this sto rm should also be prepared for possible evacuations.

An area of high pressure stationed east of Japan will push Trami slowly northwestward through the early week.

Slow movement to the north and northwest is expected through midweek before accelerating toward Japan’s Ryukyu Islands and northern Taiwan late in the week.

At this time, areas from northern Taiwan through the southern Ryukyu Islands can expect to feel some impacts from Trami as early as Friday with the worst conditions expected on Saturday and Sunday.

Trami is expected to turn northeast as it nears Taiwan, potentially sparing the country from the storm’s worst impacts; however, if the storm moves faster it could track near or just north of the island before taking its northward turn resulting in Trami’s damaging winds and torrential rainfall lashing Taipei and surrounding parts of northern Taiwan.

If Trami’s sharp turn occurs prior to reaching Taiwan, northern parts of the country ca n expect gusty winds and showers. If the storm tracks farther west before making a turn to the north, then locally damaging winds and torrential rainfall will be possible.

The southern Ryukyu Islands will face the worst of Trami regardless of how quickly the storm turns northward. Ishigaki, Miyakojima and Okinawa should all prepare for damaging winds, torrential rainfall and the potential for prolonged power outages beginning as early as Friday or Friday night.

This north and then northeast tu rn could result in Trami tracking just west of the northern Ryukyu Islands before potentially slamming the mainland of Japan with a direct hit by the end of the weekend or early next week.

These areas should also be prepared for impacts from a powerful typhoon ranging from damaging winds to flooding and mudslides.

Rough seas will be a concern for areas from Taiwan to Japan from Tuesday into this weekend as swells from the storm are already approaching Taiwan and the Ryukyu Islands.
