Super Typhoon Guchol (Butchoy) Update 1


Image

Butchoy has now become the season’s first “super typhoon” or that equal to a category 5 hurricane.  It is expected to miss the philippines, but officials warned of a storm surge.

As Butchoy advances north, it may hit Okinawa Japan the evening of June 17.  It is expected to be a category 1 storm by the time it reaches Tokyo and Fukushima prefecture, where it is expected to make landfall.  While the downgrade in strength of the storm is good, it also means that Butchoy will be moving slower, dropping large amounts of water at the damaged reactors.  Typhoon Butchoy (Guchol) could hammer the eastern seaboard until Thursday June 22.
