26W - Major Guam Threat
      #99504 - Fri Sep 07 2018 01:14 AM

A Tropical Depression in the West Pac, 26W, is already forecast to become a Super Typhoon - likely named Mangkhut.

This system will potentially impact the U.S. island territory of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands like they haven't seen in ages. I can not recall ever seeing a first advisory - Advisory #1 - going straight to borderline Cat 5. If this forecast verifies, destruction on these islands could be epic. Fortunately, this is also a very good lead time for preparation and any necessary evacuations.
