Tropical storm season remains active


Three strong tropical cyclones are expected to make landfall this weekend bringing high winds and heavy rain to various parts of the world.


Cyclone Giri formed in the Bay of Bengal this week and has rapidly developed into a severe cyclone with winds approaching 140 mph. It is expected to make landfall late on Friday over northern coastal regions of Myanmar, close to the border with Bangladesh.


Typhoon Megi brought high winds and heavy rain to the northern Philippines last weekend, but is set to make landfall again over southern China on Saturday. Although a little weaker now, winds close to 100 mph and heavy rain are expected to affect coastal regions.


On Thursday, Tropical Storm Richard formed in the Caribbean Sea and became the 17th storm of the Atlantic season. Only four seasons on record have been more active in the Atlantic. Richard is expected to strengthen into a hurricane through the weekend and make landfall over the Yucatan Peninsula by Monday.
