When it rains, it pours: Second typhoon forms in the Pacific this week

Just hours after we reported the 24th typhoon – Koppu has formed, a second typhoon – Champi has formed in the Pacific. It is going at 20km/hr. It is still unclear whether it will affect Taiwan or not.

The two typhoons are not expected to have a Fujiwara effect. Fujiwara is when two nearby cyclonic vortices orbit each other and close the distance between the circulations of their corresponding low-pressure areas.

Typhoon Koppu is expected to be a very strong typhoon. However, the Central Weather Bureau says it is still to early to predict its path.
