Super Typhoon Yuto – 5th Strongest Storm to Make Landfall
Earlier today Super Typhoon Yuto made landfall in the Northern Mariana Islands with sustained winds estimated at 180 mph. That makes it tied for the 5th strongest storm on record to make landfall anywhere in the world. Just a reminder. A typhoon is the same thing as a hurricane. They are just called typhoons in that part of the world.
made its first landfall on the Caribbean island nation of Dominica on Monday, September 18, as a Category 5 storm with winds topping 160 mph - the strongest hurricane on record to make landfall there. Days later, the storm devastated the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico.
- Maria is the first Category 4 hurricane to directly impact Puerto Rico in 85 years
- Nearly the entire population of Puerto Rico -- more than 3 million American citizens -- are without electricity in Puerto Rico, nearly a week after Maria made landfall on Wednesday, September 20
- It could take four to six months until power is restored, officials there say
- Puerto Rico had not yet fully recovered from Hurricane Irma, which pummelled the island with high winds just two weeks earlier
