Re: First STY of West Pac Season to Hit Philippines

Super typhoon Megi started to make landfall on the island of Luzon in the Philippines at 18/03Z. Winds were sustained at 145 knots (about 165mph) with gusts to 175 knots (about 200mph) and a recently measured central pressure of 885MB. If the pressure reading did not change prior to landfall, Megi will set a new record for lowest pressure at landfall. The Great Keys Hurricane of 09/03/35 had a pressure of 892MB at landfall.

Added: At 18/04Z Megi had moved inland and the pressure had increased to 914MB.
