Two powerful typhoons have hit the Philippines in less than a week. Sarika was followed by Typhoon Haima. Using satellite data, NASA estimated the intense rainfall generated by these two typhoons.
Typhoon Haima barreled into southern China on Friday after hammering the northern Philippines with ferocious wind and rain, triggering flooding, landslides and power outages and killing at least 13 people.
NASA satellite data provided a look at Super Typhoon Haima in visible and infrared light to show the extent and strength of the storm.
Supertyphoon Haima continues to move toward the Philippines and NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite provided a visible image of the storm that revealed a clear eye.
