13:40 UTC short wave IR image of Super Typhoon Hagibis just east of the Marianas Islands. Note the extremely tight, small eye

Latest analysis and weather update indicate Hagibis has reached more than 259 km/h (140 kt) peak sustained winds, an equivalent-CAT5 tropical cyclone. Peak wind gusts are now at 315 km/h probably more making it the strongest storm ever observed on Earth in human history. It is expected to further strengthen to 280-290 km/h peak sustained winds, a world record.

Hagibis now has -90 degrees Celcius cloud top temperatures with shockingly similar structure to those of Typhoon Haiyan and Typhoon Tip.
