UPDATE, Oct. 7, 10:45 p.m. ET: Super Typhoon Vongfong is maintaining its extraordinary intensity, with 180 mile per hour estimated sustained winds and higher gusts. It is giving rise to waves of at least 50 feet in height, according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC).

Forecasters say Vongfong is likely to remain a Category 5 storm through much of the day on Wednesday, perhaps even intensifying further, unless internal processes weaken it unexpectedly. As it has for the past two days, the storm track forecast remains focused on an eventual landfall in Japan early next week, but the JTWC says it has "low confidence" in the exact track this far in advance.
