Super Typhoon Noru

At 1:15 p.m. Japan Standard Time (04:15 Universal Time) on July 31, 2017, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured these images of Super Typhoon Noru over the northern Pacific Ocean. The wide view shows the breadth of the storm; the second image shows a detailed view of structure within its eye. At the time, the center of Noru was located about 250 kilometers southwest of Iwo Jima. Maximum sustained winds measured 240 kilometers (150 miles) per hour, making it the equivalent of a category 4 storm . The typhoon had weakened somewhat since July 30, when it briefly became a category 5 storm. References Joint Typhoon Warning Center (2017, July 31) Typhoon 07W (Noru) Warning #44.
