Comments: Tropical Cyclone Soudelor formed in the north-west Pacific Ocean, north-west of Enewetak Atoll of the Marshall Islands, on 30 July. Through 3 August, it moved north-west, crossing the Northern Mariana Islands, with its centre passing over Saipan with Typhoon intensity, in the afternoon of 2 August. The Typhoon caused damage on Saipan island, especially in its public infrastructure, affecting power and water supply. Around 350 people remained in shelters as of 3 August, as there has been substantial damage to buildings, too, according to local media. A State of Disaster and Significant Emergency has been announced for the island. Over the next 48 hours, Soudelor is forecast to continue intensifying and become a "Violent" Typhoon, while moving north-west, away from the Mariana Islands, towards the northern Philippine Sea. The Typhoon may approach the southern Ryukyu islands and Taiwan over 7 August.
