The deadly typhoon that slammed the Philippines and is headed for Southeast Asia is a "monster" storm, according to Joe Bastardi, chief forecaster at Weather Bell.

"It's a big storm … It would probably be the type of thing where if it hit Charleston, North Carolina, the northern edge of the storm winds may be in Norfolk and the southern edge would probably be near Jacksonville. So it's a big storm," Bastardi told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.

Bastardi says the type of storm now hitting the Philippines is more common on the West Coast.

"When you look at the Pacific Ocean, you got to remember, that ocean has the warmest water in the world [and] there are many, many, many more typhoons in the southwest Pacific than there are hurricanes in the Atlantic," he said.

"Even in an off year, some of their off years, there are 30, 35 storms. So most of the global, tropical activity comes from the Pacific Ocean. A lot of people don't understand that."
