 Typhoon Sally(台风莎莉)

Typhoon Sally was formed on Sept. 3, 1964, near Ponape. It moved west, reaching typhoon status by the next day and super typhoon status by the 6th. Its peak winds reached 195 mph (314 km/h), becoming the strongest typhoon of the season on the 7th.

Sally made landfall in the Philippines on the 9th as a Category 4 typhoon and then continued to make landfall in south China as a 115 mph (185 km/h) typhoon on the 10th, dissipating over land that same day.
