Friday Morning Typhoon In-Fa Update

http://www.prh.noaa.gov/images/guam/frTrack1.jpg

In-Fa went through Chuuk yesterday as a tropical storm with 65 mph winds. We have not heard yet about any damages the storm may have caused. Last night the storm regained strength and is a typhoon again. According to the Guam Pacific Daily News,

Typhoon In-Fa is on track to pass south of Guam Saturday. As of 5 a.m., the typhoon was located about 405 miles southeast of Guam, according to the National Weather Service. Maximum sustained winds were 85 mph, and it was moving west-northwest at 13 mph.

It looks like most Saturday events will need to be canceled. Right now, as you can see from the 1am National Weather Service predicted track above, the storm is expected to track right between most of the inhabited outer islands between Chuuk and Yap and miss them. This would be good news, as many of them were hit pretty hard by typhoon Maysak last year. Please pray this storm will not turn to the north or south. If anything new happens I will post again.
