Super Typhoon Megi Gathers Steam


Just heard from Ian Walsh, he’s off to Japan to catch some typhoon swell courtesy of Super Typhoon Megi. Watch this thing as it progresses (hopefully) into a good swell for Hawaii and California…

As reported on

(Oct. 19) — Images of Typhoon Megi captured recently by NASA satellites reveal the magnitude of the year’s most intense tropical cyclone. Forecasters predict that the now-Category 3 storm, which reached “Super Typhoon” status on Saturday before reportedly killing 10 people in the northern Philippines, will continue its trajectory across the pacific and reintensify to Category 4 or 5 before entering China or Vietnam later this week.

“Weather watchers say it’s already shaping up to be bigger than Hurricane Katrina,” New Zealand’s Channel 3 news reported.
