Some here might know about the dispute over a chain of islands claimed by Japan, Taiwan and China (video) http://thelede.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/25/video-reports-fr... I think that dispute is going to be put on hold - in fact may already be. Jelawat is an extremely powerful storm headed for those islands.http://www.weather.com/news/pacific-super-typhoon-jelawat-20...Yet Another Super Typhoon: Jelawat (video)<snip>For the first time in 15 years, a third consecutive "super typhoon" has developed in the western Pacific Ocean.Jelawat became a super typhoon on Sunday (U.S. time) and remained one as of Tuesday morning, with maximum sustained winds of 160 miles per hour.The U.S. Joint Typhoon Warning Center, which tracks tropical cyclones in the Western Pacific, uses the term "super typhoon" for a tropical cyclone with maximum sustained winds of at least 150 miles per hour, the equivalent of a high-end Category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.
