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.
Tropical Storm Aere was drifting in the South China Sea, just south of Hong Kong, as NASA's Terra satellite passed overhead.
Tropical Storm Chaba moved into the Sea of Japan as NASA's Aqua satellite passed overhead and captured a visible picture of the storm as it was becoming extra-tropical and affected by wind shear.
NASA satellite imagery showed that Typhoon Chaba's eye had closed as the storm weakened between Oct. 3 and Oct. 4. NASA's Aqua and Terra satellites passed over the Northwestern Pacific Ocean and captured infrared and visible ...
Divers say a towering coral known as the "Big Mushroom" at the heart of a world-famous dive site in Taiwan has been toppled after Typhoon Meranti struck last week.
NASA's Aqua satellite provided a visible image of Super Typhoon Meranti as it continued to move toward Taiwan and the northern Philippines.
NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite measured cloud top temperatures as it passed over Tropical Storm Malakas in the northwestern Pacific Ocean and found strong storms.
