Super Typhoon Maemi (15W) South of Japan

March 29, 2013
The MODIS instrument onboard NASA’s Terra satellite captured this true-color image of Typhoon Maemi located south-southeast of Okinawa, Japan. At the time this image was taken, Maemi was packing sustained winds of 130 mph with gusts to 160 mph. Maemi is the Korean name for a cicada that legend says chirps madly to warn of a coming typhoon.
