Super Typhoon Saomai, a category 5 tropical cyclone by Atlantic Ocean standards, is tracking towards the China coast at 20 mph. The powerful typhoon will make landfall just south of Shanghai around midnight EDT, with the highly populated city of Wenshou (2.5 million) directly in its path. Saomai is packing sustained winds of 160 mph, and was located 150 nm west-southwest of Naha, Okinawa as of 4 pm EDT according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. Average wave heights in the vicinity of the storm were reported at 40 feet. The last tropical cyclone of this intensity to make landfall on the U.S. coast was Andrew in 1992 (Katrina was a category 3 at landfall).

Tropical Storm Beryl is recurving and accelerating to the northeast as a trough in eastern Canada picks up this weakening storm. Beryl is the second tropical cyclone of the 2006 season, which has started very slowly despite predictions of an active season comparable to 2005. A tropical storm warning has been issued for Cape Cod of Massachusetts, but it appears that Beryl will only graze this area with short-lived heavy rain and gusty winds. A satellite image and forecast track map are displayed below, courtesy of the National Hurricane Center. Meanwhile, Reed and Joel are closely monitoring the tropics, and are anxious for an intense hurricane intercept anywhere in the Caribbean.
