Supertyphoon Sepat

Great... it looks like Sepat has been upgraded to a supertyphoon with current wind speed ~140 knots and 43 foot waves. It also appears that it will cross over Taiwan on the 18th and make landfall in China on the 19th. Hopefully my flight can fly over the storm and I can get in/out of HKG. I have a window seat this time; it would be cool to see a supertyphoon from above. It should look like a category 4 or 5 hurricane.

wheee!! good times! I'll be flying out tonight, so I'll be catching the brunt of the typhoon going out of TW into HK. I'll let you know how that ride is if I survive :)
