Though Tokyo was braced for the storm, Choi-Wan turned east to skirt the edge of the island. The news reported little damage from the storms rains and 78 mile-per-hour winds. “Choi-wan” is Cantonese for “colorful clouds.” The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASAs Terra satellite captured this image.
