Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory shows Typhoon Soulik as it approached Japan on Monday.
The powerful storm had maximum sustained winds of 115 miles per hour, and was expected to move over the Amami Islands before heading north toward the Korean Peninsula.
Japan may endure a second storm later this week, as Typhoon Cimaron intensifies in the Northwest Pacific.
This image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite on August 20, 2018.
