Typhoon Muifa close to the Philippines

Typhoon Muifa, winds of 120 mph, is almost stationary while churning in the Philippine Sea just east of Manila. In fact, for all intents and purposes, the typhoon has stalled. Though forecast to move west over the islands, forward progression will be slow. Bad news for the island chain as flooding and mudslides will result from the copious amounts of rain expected to fall over the next 48 hours. There is no doubt that the large and powerful waves have been battering the eastern coast of the northern Philippines. The system appears to be weakening, however, and this trend will continue over the next 5 days as it heads towards southern Vietnam.


The Atlantic and eastern Pacific Basins remain quiet.
