Call it Stormy Monday

The forecasts look OK at the moment. The storm (now named Man-Yi) will pass north of Yap proper tonight around midnight local time (GMT+10), and it will not become a typhoon until tomorrow. The center of the storm is currently over the Yap outer island Furaulep.

The weather here is actually quite calm at the moment. As we are on the western side of the storm, and it is rotating counter-clockwise, the winds are coming in from the north-west. Being on the eastern side of the island, we are protected.

Updates will follow during the day. More information at The Joint Typhoon Warning Center, The Guam Weather Service and Weather Underground.
