Odette has been upgraded to a Super Typhoon. This is the 15th typhoon to make landfall inside the Philippine Area of Responsibility. This super typhoon has caused extensive damage to infrastructure and homes. The affected areas have been advised to evacuate due to the typhoon.
The US Joint Typhoon Warning Center has upgraded Typhoon Odette to a super typhoon (JTWC).
Odette weakened somewhat, according to JTWC's last bulletin, with maximum sustained winds of 130 knots and gustiness of 160 knots.
The weather service employs Saffir-Simpson, which is based on 1-minute average sustained wind data. A storm with sustained winds of at least 130 knots is deemed a super typhoon by the organization's guidelines.
PAGASA, on the other hand, utilizes a tropical cyclone strength scale based on 10-minute average sustained wind observations.
This indicates that the US JTWC reading is higher than PAGASA.
