Tropical Cyclone THANE-11 of Saffir-Simpson Category 1 affected 16 million people with winds above 39mph (63 km/h) and 3.5 million people with hurricane wind strengths (74mph or 119 km/h). In addition, 121 thousand people are living in coastal areas below 5m and can therefore be affected by storm surge.
This is about a 10 day sail for T2 from her intended station on the coast of Thailand, if we were already operational, we'd be watching this very closely. The 120 thousand people in the path of this hurricane are in distinct danger and there will be a lot of need for help in the aftermath if the storm keeps this track.
