Typhoon Chan-hom

Location:  forecasted to hit Guam at about 12:00 GMT on 4 July
Details: Data supplied by the US Navy and Air Force Joint Typhoon Warning Center suggest that the point of landfall will be near 12.9 N, 145.5 E. Chan-hom is expected to bring 1-minute maximum sustained winds to the region of around 148 km/h (92 mph). Wind gusts in the area may be considerably higher.
 
According to the Saffir-Simpson damage scale the potential property damage and flooding from a storm of Chan-hom's strength (category 1) at landfall includes: Storm surge generally 1.2-1.5 metres (4-5 feet) above normal. No real damage to building structures. Damage primarily to unanchored mobile homes, shrubbery, and trees. Some damage to poorly constructed signs. Some coastal road flooding and minor pier damage. There is also the potential for flooding further inland due to heavy rain.

The US National Weather Service issued an alert warning that Super Typhoon Maysak is currently moving towards Fais and Ulithi. It will hit the islands within the next two to four hours, it warned. Category 5 after winds of over 155mph were recorded at its centre.
 
“We expect around a 10ft storm surge at Fais. And Ulithi, depending on the exact track, it could have anywhere between six to 10ft.”
 
"If it tracks directly over [Ulithi], the entire atoll could be underwater. So it's not a good situation."
 
Emergency workers advised people to seek shelter in concrete buildings, with significant damage expected. In Chuuk, houses and crops were destroyed and Governor Johnson Elimo has declared a state of emergency. Models predict the centre of Maysak will come close to Yap in the Caroline Islands (population 11,000) as a major typhoon midday on Tuesday (US time)." While the storm is expected to weaken, it is on track to pass through the Philippines at the weekend.

The Villarrica volcano in southern Chile erupted in the early hours of Tuesday morning, 3/3/15.
 
More than 3,000 people have been evacuated from the volcano's vicinity. The mayor of the nearby town of Pucon said residents had left "calmly". Chilean police said the towns of Pucon and Conaripe had been evacuated as a precaution.
 
Pucon Mayor Carlos Parra said that after 20 minutes, the volcano's activity seemed to have calmed down again. "There's no ash, no lava flow, the volcano is totally passive at the moment," he said.
