Typhoon Soudelor could land a direct hit on the Taiwanese capital of Taipei with the same force as 2005's devastating Hurricane Katrina, forecasters warned Friday.
"It is barreling down on Taiwan and winds will strengthen to around 130 mph by the time it hits at some point this afternoon U.S. time," Weather Channel forecaster Michael Palmer said. "There will undoubtedly be some significant damage, there will be some massive waves and flash flooding."
