Nalgae is heading over warm water – meaning it is likely to increase in strength – and Luzon in the Phillipeans could bear the brunt of it.
Typhoon Nalgae is expect to take the same track as Typhoon Nesat.
Not quite as large as Nesat, Nalgae is packing 135 mph maximum sustained winds and reached category 4 strength this morning. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center reports Nalgae “intensified rapidly” over the last 24 hours and predicts some additional strengthening. At landfall, its peak sustained winds may reach 145 mph, capable of significant destruction.
