  2. CYCLONE BERTHA to affect Britain
    “The effects of Hurricane Bertha, which is crossing the Atlantic after hitting the Caribbean with gusts of more than 145kmh, would be felt on Saturday, …”

    1st April 2015 …SUPER TYPHOON MAYSUK

    “breathtaking pics looking into the eye of supertyphoon Maysak taken by astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti from the International Space Station today and yesterday.

I haven’t checked yet today but when I did yesterday, the JTWC were going for max wind gusts to peak over 350km/hr with the Cat 5 system:”
