The extremely tight eye of Hagibis suggests peak sustained winds may be higher than now estimated. They say the location of Super Typhoon Hagibis could change and will need to be watched closely in the coming days.

The U.S. Joint Typhoon Warning Center has upgraded Super Typhoon Hagibis to a category 5 storm, with winds estimated to be blowing at 160 mph near the Northern Mariana island of Anatahan, 200 miles northeast of Guam.

It is forecast to approach south-central Japan on Saturday morning local time as a typhoon, with winds equivalent to that of a Category 3 hurricane.

The Weather Channel recently reported: "Hagibis will track west-northwestward over very warm ocean water and low wind shear, allowing it to continue strengthening as it tracks over the Northern Mariana Islands on Monday".

A unsafe tropical storm in the North Pacific Ocean has become even deadlier after strengthening to a super typhoon on October 6.

The typhoon packs a maximum wind speed near the center of 198 kph, gusting to as much as 270 kph, with a central atmospheric pressure of 915 hectopascals.

Super Typhoon Hagibis intensified rapidly over the weekend, with winds that increased from 60 miles per hour at 8 a.m. on Sunday to 160 miles per hour at the same time on Monday, the Weather Channel reported.

A typhoon warning has been issued for Tinian, Saipan, Alamagan and Pagan Islands (Northern Mariana), while a tropical storm warning is in effect for Rota, Agrihan, and Guam. The agency cancelled a tropical storm warning for Guam, which is further to the south. Despite Hagibis' strength, Hurricane Dorian remains this year's most powerful storm, said Weather Network meteorologist Tyler Hamilton.
