Sepat indeed moved as main forecastts predicted; now over se China, and tropical storm.

Maybe interesting to see this plot of estimated max sustained winds.
Shows fast strengthening, as above; then some moderating (still v strong!!) as “eyewall replacement” – with double eye for some time.
Winds picked up again; and then tailed off – surely as Sepat hit Taiwan then mainland China.
Just read of it leading to tornado over se China, 11 people dead (toll to rise as more info comes in?) [img width=580]http://www.hkoutdoors.com/components/com_joomlaboard/uploaded/images/sepatwindspeeds.GIF[/img]
