Weak Sarika to Hit China, Hurricane Adrian to Stay at Sea
By Eric Wolvovsky @ 2:49 PM
Sarika formed just west of the Philippines near Luzon, about a day ago. The storm immediately moved off to the north, not impacting the island in any meaningful way. Some slight strengthening is possible, although the system remains poorly organized and will likely make landfall in China, away from major population centers, during the next 24 hours. The Sarika will move into parts of China that have experienced extreme drought, and may bring some relief. Little to no significant damage is likely from this storm.
Hurricane Adrian formed well to the south of Mexico a few days ago, achieving hurricane status earlier today. The storm will is very unlikely to affect land.
