Vongfong, supertyphoon rivaling Haiyan, roaring toward Japan

Prophecy Sign:  Roaring and tossing seas - Anomalous weather patterns

A huge superstorm is approaching Japan the likes of which not seen since the superstorm that smashed through the Philippines last year.  In fact some prognosticators are suggesting this new storm could eclipse Haiyans category 5 status and become something akin to a category 6, (not even on the scale).

"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Luke 21:25 NIV

Vongfong, supertyphoon rivaling Haiyan, roaring toward Japan
A supertyphoon on course to hit Japan over the weekend is as powerful as the deadly storm that ripped through the Philippines in 2013 killing thousands of people, meteorologists said Wednesday. The monstrous storm, named Vongfong, was picking up speed as it churned through the far west of the Pacific Ocean. “Its strength is very much similar to Haiyan,” which ravaged the Philippines in November, said a meteorologist at the Meteorological Agency. Haiyan left nearly 8,000 people dead or missing when gusts of around 300 kph (190 mph) tore through the country, generating giant waves that swamped coastal communities. Vongfong was registering gusts of the same strength, according to the Japanese agency. Satellite images of Supertyphoon Vongfong show a perfectly formed eye in the middle of a gigantic swirling disc of cloud that appears to be sucking up weather systems from across the Tropics.

Vongfong, the year's strongest storm, bears down on Japan
The most powerful storm of the year has Japan in its sights. Hot on the heels of Typhoon Phanfone, which lashed Japan with rain and high winds last week, Vongfong, which has intensified in recent days to become the strongest tropical cyclone of 2014 so far, looks poised to buffet the country in the coming days. Typhoon Vongfong is the strongest tropical cyclone since last year's Typhoon Haiyan, which had winds of 315 km/h (195 mph) which devastated parts of the Philippines, leaving over 6,000 dead and more than 1,800 missing.
