Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Typhoon MA-ON Races Toward Japan

Posted by feww on July 17, 2011

MA-ON weakens slightly, still packing winds of about 205km/hr

Typhoon MA-ON has weakened slightly to Cat 3C Storm with winds of about 205km/hr, and gusts of up to 250km/hr

Heavy rain caused by the outer bands of the massive 2,000-km wide typhoon has already drenched most of the island of Shikoku.

MA-ON is completing an Eyewall Replacement Cycle (ERC), and should resume re-intensification in the warm waters that extend all the way to coastal areas of Japan, and in the absence of strong vertical wind shear, JTWC reported.
