Three Pacific Systems

Three systems in the Pacific:

Rammasun is dissipating inland over northern Vietnam.  A super-typhoon at its peak intensity, Rammasun probably caused over $20 Billion in impacts between the Philippines and China.  Typhoon Matmo is off the Philippines, but will pass north of Luzon.  The problem is that it is likely to dump a lot of rain on the area hit by Rammasun – perhaps as much as 25cm or more.  Matmo is forecast to make a direct hit on Taiwan, and on the current forecast track and intensity could easily cause over $10 Billion USD in impacts there, and further $2 Billion USD on the mainland.  Here’s the wind swath:

Finally, there is a tropical system trying to develop in the Mariana Islands, but it is not being officially tracked yet.
