West PacificThis is what NOAA says:
The first tropical cyclone of the 2007 season was born in the West Pacific basin. Cyclone 01W formed at 7.5N 155.1E and is expected to move northwest. It will attain typhoon strength on reaching Saipan on Tuesday. Saipan and Guam can expect the cyclone to pass closely.
IN ADDITION...A TYPHOON WATCH WILL LIKELY BE REQUIRED LATER TODAY FOR THE MARIANA ISLANDS. THIS INCLUDES TINIAN...SAIPAN...ROTA AND GUAM.
The Typhoon is now Typhoon King Kong, well, OK, it is actually Typhoon Kong Rey, but in Spanish (the Chamorro word for king is "rai"), Kong Rey means King Kong...and it's coming right for us!

The animated map makes it look like we might start getting hit by the outer bands of Typhoon King Kong later tonight. This is going to be a fun game.
