Latest Pacific typhoon season Stories
Typhoon Haikui weakened to a tropical storm just before landfall in China.
Tropical Storm Haikui is headed for landfall in southeastern China, and NASA's Aqua satellite caught a stunning image of its size and its ragged, but wide eye when it was a typhoon earlier today, August 7.
Two NASA satellites have captured data on the activity of Typhoon Haikui as it nears the China coast. NASA's Terra satellite provided a visible look at the storm, while NASA's Aqua satellite investigated it in infrared light. Both showed some strong thunderstorms within that were likely packing heavy rainfall.
When NASA's Aqua satellite captured an infrared view of the northwestern Pacific's latest tropical storm, Tropical Storm 13W, the data revealed the bulk of the heavy rainfall on the northern side of the center.
NASA's Aqua satellite captured an image of a very busy northwestern Pacific Ocean where three tropical cyclones are active.
Tropical Storm Saola and Typhoon Damrey appear on NASA satellite imagery to be arm-in-arm as they enter China on August 2.
NASA's Terra satellite captured two tropical cyclones on visible imagery today, August 1 as they head for landfall.

Typhoon Saola looks like a monster tropical cyclone in infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite today, July 30.
Tropical Storm Damrey appears to be a compact tropical storm on NASA satellite imagery as it heads west. It is expected to pass north of Iwo To, Japan and later south of Kyushu, one of Japan's large islands.
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...
