Typhoon Noru

Typhoon Noru, known in the Philippines as Super Typhoon Karding, is a strong tropical cyclone currently threatening Vietnam. The sixteenth named storm and eighth typhoon of the 2022 Pacific typhoon season, Noru originated from a disturbance over the Philippine Sea, slowly tracking eastward until its development into a tropical depression, where it began to move westward. Noru underwent rapid intensification as it approached Luzon, with 10-minute maximum sustained winds intensifying by 45 knots in the span of 24 hours. Noru made its first landfall over the Polillo Islands on September 26 at 15:30 PHT as a PAGASA super typhoon, and its second over Central Luzon five hours later as a high-end typhoon. It significantly weakened while crossing Luzon and emerged into the South China Sea nine hours later.
