Super Typhoon Tip

Super Typhoon Tip was a monster, even for
a typhoon. It broke several records: it had a
diameter of 2,220 kilometres (1,380 miles)
– nearly twice that of the previous record
holder. It had sustained winds of 260
kilometres (160 miles) per hour and also set
the world record for intensity with a
staggering pressure low of 870 millibars.
Typhoon Tip originated south of
Micronesia though it remained a tropical
storm until it made a sudden westerly
diversion from Guam, where it intensifi ed
considerably and hit its peak nearly 1,000
kilometres (620 miles) from land.
