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...
Left Image Credit: Joshua Kelly - Right Image Credit: NASA Typhoon Guchol, these past few days, had made it to Super Typhoon strength which would be the same as saying that it was a CAT 3 or larger storm. It quickly raced up towards Okinawa Japan leaving its first imprints with reports of winds near 60-70mph with higher gusts. It then moved up northward into Shikoku Japan where it made landfall with wind reports near Muroto-Misaki around 70mph with higher gusts. Then it made its way...
