Super Typhoon Ioke

RECORD BREAKING TYPHOON  Today Ioke became the first category 5 typhoon to have spawned in the KTC monitoring area and only the seventh to have ever entered the area. Moreover, this is the strongest Typhoon ever to make a direct hit on any Kryous possession. Extensive damage is already being reported across the island. Power is reported out on all of the island, except in extreme southern Azah. Extreme costal erosion is expected on the northern shore of the main island. Storm surge on the east coast of Diphida will be in the 25-30 ft range. The lower port of Chen Mai is inundated with 8 ft of standing water.   As of 8AM KST Super Typhoon Ioke made landfall just northeast of Yessos. Sustained winds were recorded around 155 mph with gusts to 200 mph being recorded on the eastern tip of the island. A second landfall is expected on Diphida after a brief cross into the Jostan Channel.   Stay tuned to the KTC for future conditions.
