Typhoon CIMARON passed across Luzon Island, Philippines, and left the damage of 19 dead and 15 missing. Considering the intensity of the typhoon, however, it can be said that the human damage was close to minimal. Typhoon was then expected to move west in the South China Sea toward Vietnam, but in fact, it slowed down to stationary after entering into South China Sea, and the future track became highly uncertain.And the typhoon is also showing the trend of reintensification. Typhoon CHANCHU of this year also made a sharp turn near here, so will this typhoon also make a turn toward north to the southern coast of China? This is uncertain at this moment, but in any case, it is hoped that lessons learned from the massive shipwreck of fishing boats in South China Sea during the previous typhoon will be used for the evacuation procedure this time.
