The epicenter of typhoon PODUL did not reach the city of Sanya, Hainan, China, only 55 kilometers and in the evening of August 29, 2019, the typhoon unexpectedly turned southwest, towards Vietnam, the typhoon will reach Vietnam early in the morning on August 30, 2019 and Thailand - on August 31, 2019, in the video above video articles of the last typhoon trajectory.
Thus, only heavy rains fell on the city of Sanya from the evening of August 29, 2019, with moderate wind, but all flights and train traffic on Hainan Island were suspended.
As we wrote yesterday, a typhoon is a spontaneous phenomenon with an unpredictable trajectory, different weather services differently predicted the typhoon trajectory PODUL, yesterday we showed a video where we plotted all the possible trajectories of the typhoon PODUL, where the orange dotted line is the typhoon trajectory predicted by the Taiwan meteorological service, the blue dotted line is the typhoon trajectory predicted by the US meteorological service, the gray dashed line is the typhoon trajectory predicted by the South Korean weather service, the pink dashed line is the typhoon trajectory, predicted by the Hong Kong weather service, the green dashed line is the typhoon trajectory predicted by the Japan weather service, the red dotted line is the typhoon trajectory predicted by the China weather service
Now we see that the closest to reality turned out to be information about the typhoon PODUL of the US Weather Service and Japan Weather Service. In the coming days, Hainan Island also expects periodic rains, other typhoons have not yet been observed within a radius of 2 thousand kilometers.
