In this image, you can see Typhoon Tembin (situated on the west), before the coast of China (near Honkong) and Typhoon Bolaven (situated on the east), in the East China Sea and spinning to the north-west (towards North Korea).
On August 26 The Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) issued a warning on both typhoons. At that time, Bolaven carried maximum sustained winds of 212 km/h (132 mph). It was tracking northwestward, and expected to make landfall in North Korea on August 28. At that time, the storm is expected to have weakened, with winds about 157 km/h (98 mph).
At the same time, the JTWC reported that Tembin was located approximately 402 km southwest of Taipei (Taiwan) and had weakened, with maximum sustained winds of 157 km/h (98 mph).
Tembin is predicted to strengthen over the next 24 hours, as well as turn to the east and re-cross Taiwan sometime between August 27 and 28.
