Typhoon Malakas Update #12

Typhoon Malakas brushed Iwo To earlier and is now accelerating towards the northeast. Maximum sustained winds have increased to 165kph with gusts of up to 205kph. Malakas is moving to the north northeast at 40kph.

Malakas is forecast to hold on to its present intensity before a gradual weakening occurs; a little strengthening is still possible and Malakas may become a category 3, albeit for a short time. Malakas will undergo extra tropical transition, which is expected to be completed on Sunday.
