Live Updates from Western Pacific Weather

Latest video update on Tropical Storm Haikui which has weakened from a typhoon after making landfall in Eastern China earlier this morning. Haikui is now moving across Zhejiang Province, southwest of Shanghai. Strong winds and heavy rains continue to be reported across many provinces in Eastern China with some stations now receiving up to 300mm of rain. China Meteorological Administration is expecting as much as 100 to even 200mm of rain to fall in the next 2 days. Haikui will slow down and should weaken to a tropical depression by Friday. Its remnants will move back into East China Sea by Saturday but is not expected to re-intensify.

The video also gives the latest updates on the continuing effects of the Southwest Monsoon across Luzon. Many areas are still flooded although some are reporting that the water has begun to recede. Marikina River has finally come down to about 17m (it reached 20m last night). Some dams, however, continue to release water as the water level is still beyond the critical/spilling level. Please continue to monitor developments in your area on the news or on the web.
