As all eyes in the Atlantic Basin watch the progression of Hurricane Isaac, there are two tropical systems in the western Pacific Ocean that bear watching as well.
Typhoon Tembin made landfall across southern Taiwan early Friday morning local time with maximum sustained winds around 70 knots (80 mph).
The greatest impacts from Tembin were felt across Pingtung and Kaoshiung counties, where widespread rainfall amounts of 500 mm (19.68 inches) have fallen over much of Pingtung county with the town of Checheng reporting 625.5 mm (24.6 inches) over a span of just 20 hours, according to the Central Weather Bureau.
Fortunately, no casualties were reported from Tembin's passage, and its impact across the more heavily populated northern half of Taiwan was minimal. According to the Associated Press, businesses and schools in the capital city of Taipei operated normally and flights in the city's airports were unaffected.
Tembin is expected to remain a typhoon as it slowly spins over the Taiwan Strait over the next 24-36 hours. A change in the upper-air pattern will push the system eastward and back over the southern tip of Taiwan by Monday. This will bring more rain and wind to the already inundated region.
Farther east, a stronger typhoon is churning up the waters of the Philippine Sea. As of Sunday morning, EDT, Typhoon Bolaven had maximum sustained winds of 115 knots (130 mph), the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane.
Bolaven made landfall in northern Okinawa on Sunday morning, EDT. Roaring winds and heavy rainfall assaulted the island and its surrounding area. Rainfall was falling at a rate of well over an inch an hour across parts of the region.
Bolaven will continue to progress northward with the equivalent of major hurricane strength on Monday into the Yellow Sea. This will likely bring hurricane-force winds of 65 knots (74 mph) or greater to Jeju Province and tropical storm-force winds of 34 knots (39 mph) or greater to much of South Jeolla Province.
