Battlefield V Is Going Back To The Pacific

  Battlefield V Is Going Back To The Pacific Next week, Battlefield V is heading to the Pacific with two new maps, two new factions and loads of new vehicles and weapons. It also, somehow, is going to be the first time you can play as the U.S.A., at least in this particular Battlefield. The Pacific is the focus of Battlefield V’s Chapter 5, and when it releases (for free) on October 31 it’ll have two maps: Iwo Jima, which combines beach landings with king of the hill battles over Mount Suribachi and Pacific Storm, which looks like a modern reinterpretation of the Paracel Storm map from Battlefield 4. You can play as either the Imperial Japanese Army or the “U.S.

Winds are often used to measure intensity as they commonly cause notable impacts over large areas, and most popular tropical cyclone scales are organized around sustained wind speeds.

Ocean between Asia and Australia in the west, the Americas in the east and Antarctica or the Southern Ocean in the south. The Pacific Ocean is the largest and deepest of Earth' s oceanic divisions.

A super Typhoon called Halong is raging above the waters of the western tropical Pacific, with satellite imagery estimating its winds are tearing at speeds close to 305km/h.

The typhoon is one of the strongest storm observed since satellite coverage began in the 1970s, reports the Weather Network.

Waves near its centre will reach up to 12 metres high.

Luckily, the superstorm is not forecast to hit land and will begin to weaken over the next three days, according to the Weather Network.

  The 'paradise' island that wants to leave Australia: People on tiny idyllic isle want to break free from the mainland and become part of New Zealand Norfolk Island residents want to officially leave Australia and become part of New Zealand, a new survey has revealed. Despite technically being a part of New South Wales, the tiny idyllic island in the Pacific Ocean actually sits closer to New Zealand's north island.A recent survey of more than 450 of its 1,800 residents found that 35 per cent wanted free association with Australia, and 37 per cent wanted free association with New Zealand.It also found that one-in-four locals wanted to be fully independent from from any country, while just three per cent wished to integrate with mainland Australia.

To judge the strength of storms like Halong, forecasters use satellite data.

The data uses a process called the Advanced Dvorak Technique (ADT) which takes visible and infrared satellite images and compares them with cloud patterns already on record.

ADT offers a "best guess" at what a storm's strength will be.

Using this process, forecasters have placed Halong at a score of 7.9 reports the Weather Network.

Hurricane Dorian, which decimated the Bahamas in August, maxed out at 6.4.

Halong is the seventh super typhoon to form in the west Pacific this year, reports The Weather Network.

While the storm will not touch land, it's expected to impact weather conditions across Canada, bringing cold weather and snow.
