Super Typhoon Hagibis

Spinning in the western Pacific Ocean, Super Typhoon Hagibis is making headlines for the speed at which it intensified. In less than a day, between October 6–7, 2019, wind speeds increased by 100 mph as Hagibis grew from a tropical storm to a category 5 typhoon. At 1:25 p.m. Chamorro Standard Time (03:25 UT) on October 8, 2019, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the NOAA-NASA Suomi NPP satellite acquired this natural-color image of Hagibis near the Mariana Islands. The storm’s sustained winds had decreased slightly to 250 km/h (155 mph), making it the equivalent of a category 4 storm on the Saffir-Simpson wind scale. The storm is forecasted to make landfall in Japan over the weekend. Mariana Islands
