View from space: Simultaneous storms in western Pacific

Simultaneous storms the western Pacific Ocean – Saola and Damrey – as seen by NASA’s Terra satellite. The satellite acquired this image yesterday (August 1, 2012), when both storms had typhoon status. Saola was moving across Taiwan while Damrey skirted southern Japan. Both storms are expected to make landfall in China on August 3.
