Typhoon Mindulle over Japan

Typhoon Mindulle over Japan

When Typhoon Mindulle blew ashore near Tokyo, the typhoon lashed the city with gusts of wind up to 125 kilometers (78 miles) per hour. At 10:45 a.m. local time on August 21 (03:45 Universal Time), the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite acquired this image of the storm. A second storm, Lionrock, churned south of Japan. This is the first time Tokyo has been hit by a tropical storm in eleven years.
