Typhoon Noru, known in the Philippines as Super Typhoon Karding, is a strong tropical cyclone currently threatening Vietnam.[1] The sixteenth named storm and eighth typhoon of the 2022 Pacific typhoon season, Noru originated from a disturbance over the Philippine Sea, slowly tracking eastward until its development into a tropical depression, where it began to move westward. Noru underwent rapid intensification as it approached Luzon, with 10-minute maximum sustained winds intensifying by 45 knots (83 km/h; 52 mph) in the span of 24 hours. Noru made its first landfall over the Polillo Islands on September 26 at 15:30 PHT (09:30 UTC) as a PAGASA super typhoon, and its second over Central Luzon five hours later as a high-end typhoon. It significantly weakened while crossing Luzon and emerged into the South China Sea nine hours later.

The Philippines’ national disaster agency is currently in the process of consolidating statistics on the storm’s impacts. Preliminary reports indicate at least ₱1 million (US$20,305) in infrastructural damages and ₱160 million (US$3.25 million) in agricultural damages, totalling to ₱161 million (US$3.27 million). Six people have been reported dead following the typhoon, another six remain missing.
