What is a Super-typhoon?

This is a term utilized by the U.S. Joint Typhoon Warning Center for typhoons that reach maximum sustained 1-minute surface winds of at least 240 kph or 150 mph.

This is the equivalent of a strong Saffir-Simpson category 4 or category 5 hurricane in the Atlantic basin or a category 5 severe tropical cyclone in the Australian basin.

Wind Speed Definitions:

Gusts are just a few seconds, for example the maximum speed sustained for about 3 to 5 seconds.
Maximum sustained wind is normally taken over a ONE, TWO or TEN minute period, to get a value for a sustained wind peak.  These reports use the ONE MINUTE system.

News Reports:

Friday 5th December

As of 2 a.m. EST Friday, JTWC lowered its estimate of Hagupit’s top winds to 145 mph, meaning it is no longer a “super” typhoon.
However, it is still the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane.
While Hagupit has lost its super-typhoon status, it is still a formidable storm with the potential to cause serious damage.

http://www.usno.navy.mil/JTWC/

Thursday 4th December

The United States Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) has classified Typhoon Hagupit (Ruby) as a super typhoon.

    Last year, Haiyan’s massive storm surge caught many people off guard as it roared in off the Gulf of Leyte, splintering buildings and tossing large ships onto dry land.
    Tacloban Mayor Alfred Romualdez said they’re better prepared this year, having learned the lessons of Haiyan a year ago.

    Residents are taking the storm warnings very seriously and most people have fled the city, he told CNN.
