Ha Long typhoon is increasing rapidly in the Western Pacific, with satellite images recording winds of 305 km / h.

According to Stuff, the power of Ha Long's "monster" super typhoon from satellite has caught the attention of meteorologists around the world.

The super typhoon was originally a tropical depression, but reached its highest level on a 5-level hurricane scale, after only 3 days. Typhoon Dorian, which devastated a large area in the Bahamas in September, also had winds of up to 297 km / h.

Philip Klotzbach, a storm researcher at Colorado State University, said winds of 305 km / h were measured using Dvorak's Advanced Technique - a method of measuring the strength of storms remotely by satellite.

This means that this is the strongest super typhoon ever measured by the Dvorak method, since 'satellite time' in 1979.

Klotzbach said the temperature of water in the area is the reason why Ha Long super typhoon quickly strengthened. ' In the Western Pacific right now it is still very hot'.

Ha Long super typhoon became the third level 5 storm in the Pacific this year. Super typhoon Hagibis reached level 5 after only 18 hours and devastated Japan, especially the impact on the high-speed rail system. Another super typhoon reaching level 5 this year is Wutip, formed in February 2019 and landed on Guam.

The typhoon Ha Long is still at sea and is likely to weaken in the next few days.
