Sharing is Caring!

6 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 23, Japan time: Trami has been upgraded to a Category 1-equivalent typhoon by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. And as Trami continues to strengthen, a solution on exactly where Trami will go continues to be elusive.

At 3 a.m., Trami was 836 miles southeast of Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, headed west at 17 mph packing 75 mph sustained winds and 92 mph gusts. Tropical storm-force winds extend 190 miles from center to northeast and 65 miles to the southeast, according to the National Weather Service.

There is a lot of uncertainty in the later path, but right now it looks like Taiwan is going to be hit hard.
