Typhoon Pabuk's Veiled Eye Seen By NASA
2013-09-24 10:57:38

NASA NASA's Aqua satellite orbit around the Earth took it right over Typhoon Pabuk and the image showed an eye veiled with some high clouds. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image of Typhoon Pabuk on Sept. 24 at 04:05 UTC as it was nearing Japan. In the image, high clouds draped over Pabuk's eye. Pabuk's eye is about 30 nautical miles/34.5 miles/55.5 km wide, about three times larger than...

Typhoon Pabuk Continues To Strengthen
2013-09-23 12:41:22

NASA Typhoon Pabuk (was 98W) continued to strengthen as it moved north through the northwestern Pacific Ocean on Sept. 23, and NASA's Aqua satellite captured an infrared image of the storm. The NASA image showed powerful thunderstorms east of the storm's center. On Sept. 23 at 3:17 UTC/Sept. 22 at 11:17 p.m. EDT NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Typhoon Pabuk in the northwestern Pacific Ocean and the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument captured an infrared image. The AIRS...

NASA Sees Southern China Hit By Deadly Typhoon Usagi
2013-09-23 11:08:58

NASA Southeastern China was hit by the  most powerful typhoon of 2013 on Sept. 22, when Typhoon Usagi came ashore landfall in the Guangdong Province during the evening. NASA's TRMM satellite observed very heavy rainfall just south of the eye as the center was landfalling. When Typhoon Usagi, the Japanese word for "rabbit," made landfall it had maximum sustained winds near 95.6 knots (~110 mph). According to Xinhuanet.com news, 25 people were killed by the storm. Over 310,000 residents...

Super Typhoon Affecting Philippines And Taiwan, Headed To China
2013-09-20 15:17:51

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center The most powerful typhoon of 2013 was passing between northern Philippines and southern Taiwan on Sept. 19. When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Usagi, infrared data showed a large area of powerful thunderstorms and heavy rain surrounding the center while NASA's TRMM satellite measured that heavy rainfall from space. Super-Typhoon Usagi is a monster storm that according the Joint Typhoon Warning Center is headed for a landfall near Hong Kong on Sept....

NASA Sees Tropical Storm Usagi Intensify Into A Typhoon
2013-09-19 15:15:42

NASA What was a tropical storm rapidly intensified into Typhoon Usagi within 24 hours as it moves through the Northwestern Pacific Ocean. NASA satellite data revealed a 20-mile-wide eye and bands of thunderstorms spiraling into the center of the monster storm. The MODIS instrument, or Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer aboard NASA's Terra satellite captured an amazing image of Typhoon Usagi on Sept. 19 at 02:25 UTC moving near the Philippines. The image showed spiraling bands...

Formation Of Northwestern Pacific's Tropical Depression 18W Seen By NASA
2013-09-18 12:59:26

NASA NASA's Aqua satellite caught the birth of the eighteenth tropical depression of the northwestern Pacific Ocean tropical cyclone season. Tropical Depression 18W was born in the South China Sea and is expected to be short-lived after a quick landfall in central Vietnam. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image of disorganized Tropical Depression 18W on Sept. 18 at 0616 UTC/2:16 a.m. EDT. Satellite imagery...

Tropical Storm Manuel's Amazing Rainfall Added Up
2013-09-17 13:18:08

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Tropical Storm Manuel dropped very heavy rains that caused floods and mudslides and took lives on Mexico's Pacific coast. Manuel's rainfall was captured and tallied from NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite known as TRMM. Tropical storm Manuel may have dissipated, but the storm dropped very heavy rainfall along Mexico's Pacific coast where 21 people have been reported killed due to flooding and landslides caused by extreme rainfall. At...

Typhoon Man-yi Tracked By Two NASA Satellites Across Japan
2013-09-16 13:38:20

NASA NASA's Aqua and Terra satellites captured images as Typhoon Man-yi made landfall in southern Japan and moved across the big island. Typhoon Man-yi was approaching Japan when NASA's Aqua satellite passed overhead and captured a visible image on Sept. 15 at 0410 UTC/12:10 a.m. EDT. Man-yi weakened to a tropical storm as it quickly crossed Japan dropping heavy rainfall and causing deadly mudslides when NASA's Terra satellite passed overhead on Sept. 16.  Man-yi is now headed...

Tropical Storm Toraji's Concentrated Center Approaching Japan Seen By NASA
2013-09-03 15:53:07

NASA NASA satellite imagery showed strong thunderstorms circled Tropical Storm Toraji's center as the storm approached southern Japan today. A visible image of Tropical Storm Toraji was captured on Sept. 3 at 02:10 UTC/Sept. 2 at 10:10 p.m. is it continued moving north past eastern China and approached southern Japan. The image was taken by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument that flies aboard NASA's Terra satellite. The image showed strong...

NASA Sees Tropical Storm Kong-Rey Forming In Northwestern Pacific
2013-08-26 15:16:53

NASA The northwestern Pacific has generated its fourteenth tropical cyclone and NASA's Aqua satellite flew over the eastern side of the storm early on Aug. 26. Tropical Storm Kong-Rey formed from low pressure System 91W. It is located east of the northeast Philippines and bringing the region gusty winds, rains and rough seas today, Aug 26. Aqua passed over Tropical Storm Kong-Rey on Aug. 26 at 0432 UTC/12:32 a.m. EDT as it was strengthening from a tropical depression into a tropical...

Post Storm Analysis Of Typhoon Sanvu
2012-07-17 14:09:29

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...
