Two newly-formed tropical storms in the western Pacific Ocean are both on track to become major typhoons next week with one eventually targeting the corridor from Taiwan to the Korean Peninsula.
Both Tropical Storms Goni and Atsani have taken shape east of Guam and should become typhoons by the start of the new week.
While Atsani will remain over open water this weekend, Goni poses the first threat to land. “Areas [in the Northern Mariana Islands] that were battered by Soudelor could again have to deal with a strong tropical system,” stated AccuWeather Meteorologist Eric Leister. [FULL STORY]
