Micronesia warnings cancelled for Noul, Philippines next up

May 06, 2015

Typhoon Noul is currently moving west and will veer westnorthwest, then later northwest. It is predicted that the storm will steadily intensify to 125 knots over the next 3 days. The projected trajectory will see Noul pass northeast of the Philippine Islands, whilst veering north towards Taiwan.

Noul is currently located approximately 933 nautical miles east-southeast of Manila and is tracking west-northwest at 8 knots over the past six hours. The maximum wave height measured is 26 feet with maximum sustained winds of 75 knots gusting to 90. On the Saffir-Simpson scale this would be equivalent to a Category 2 hurricane.

This is the 15th warning from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center and the next warning is expected at 6:00 pm EDT, 2100 GMT.
