Muifa heading for China, possibly the Koreas
By Eric Wolvovsky @ 6:20 PM
It has taken days, but things are finally starting to clear up about where Muifa is heading. Currently the storm has winds in excess of 100 mph or 165 km/h. Forecasts take the storm on a northward trajectory , swinging very close to Shanghai, but not making landfall. Instead the storm is likely to parallel the coast until it makes landfall in Shandong province. Deviations from this forecast could have the typhoon make landfall anywhere from Shanghai to North and South Korea. As of now though, the main focus is from Shanghai to Shandong.
