Post Storm Analysis Of Typhoon Sanvu

Typhoon Sanvu formed to the Southeast of Guam on May 21, 2012 and began to make its track to the North.

Sanvu was responsible for strong winds and rain in the Guam area. It then moved to the North and impacted the island known as Iwo To. The pressure dropped to around 975mb with winds around 70mph when it made landfall on Iwo To. The eye wall passed right over the island on the evening of the 25th of May.

When Sanvu left the island of Iwo To it rapidly transitioned into an extra-tropical low pressure system as it lost its tropical identity due to the drastic colder ocean waters suppressing the convection and also the upper level wind shear started to tear it apart.
