Typhoons Saola and Damrey

Simultaneous storms hovered over the western Pacific Ocean at the beginning of August 2012. Saola was moving across Taiwan while Damrey skirted southern Japan. Both storms were expected to make landfall in China on August 3.
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this natural-color image on August 1, 2012. Both storms had typhoon status on that date, Unisys Weather reported.
The larger of the two storms, Saola had caused widespread destruction in the Philippines and Taiwan, news reports said. The Associated Press reported that in the Philippines, Saola had caused 29 deaths and 21 injuries, and had displaced nearly 180,000 people. In Taiwan, the storm had caused five deaths and left two people missing. As airport officials canceled dozens of flights, authorities released water from all of Taiwan’s major reservoirs in preparation for potential flooding.
Damrey was actually expected to come ashore in China before Saola, making landfall north of Shanghai early in the day on August 3. Saola was expected to arrive hours later, making landfall south of Shanghai.
