Super Typhoon Nida

Earlier this morning, Nida attained Super Typhoon status. It has blown up in the past 24hours and reached Cat 5 status with winds reaching 300 kph (sustained) at one point. It has peaked in intensity and is now undergoing gradual weakening as it moves into cooler waters and high winds shear. Latest forecasts call for a curvature to the north-northeast. Nida will not affect any major landmasses except for the islands of Iwo Jima.
