Typhoon Nida

The MODIS instrument onboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured this true-color image of Typhoon Nida churning in the waters 414 miles east-southeast of Manila. At the time this image was taken, Nida was packing sustained winds of 150 mph with gusts to 185 mph and was moving towards the northwest at 12 mph.
