Super Typhoon Yutu looks threatening from outer space



Weather satellites observe Typhoon Yutu, a monster storm that has threatened land across the western Pacific.

Almost a week ago, these satellites began to monitor the storm as it began to gather strength east of Guam. The storm quickly escalated to become a Category 5 typhoon (the name for hurricanes in the Pacific Ocean) in less than a day and a half.

The typhoon Yutu already has the territory of the USA reached by the Northern Mariana Islands, where the effects were catastrophically predicted. According to NASA, this was the biggest hurricane in the US this year.

The storm has slowed somewhat since this impact and was a Category 4 storm as of today (Oct. 26). According to NASA, the storm is expected to remain a typhoon by the middle of next week.

About the same time, Yutu is expected to visit the northern Philippines, Taiwan and Southeastern China Reached [19659005] Satellite meteorologists rely on the persecution of the massive storm, including the Suomi NPP, co-funded by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Japan's Himawari-8 satellite and the Global Precipitation Measurement satellite is powered by NASA and its Japanese equivalent.
