TY Nesat (Pedring) Update #9 Brief

Typhoon Nesat (Pedring) was last located approximately 180km east of Casiguran, Aurora or about 320km northeast of Manila. Maximum sustained winds remain at 150kph gusting to 185kph. Nesat is moving west northwestward at 20kph.

Latest IR Image shows the eye has become more organized and discernible. Advanced Dvorak Technique numbers (used to determine a storm's intensity) are rapidly rising and we could certainly see Nesat intensify a little bit more over the next 6 hours.
