Typhoon Krovanh (12W) approaching China

The MODIS instrument onboard the Terra spacecraft captured this birds-eye view of Typhoon Krovanh on August 24, 2003, at 03:00 UTC as it was churning in the South China Sea. The Hainan Provincial Meteorological Observatory said that the typhoon was centered approximately 80 km west of the Philippines and was expected to affect south Chinas Hainan and Guangdong provinces by late Sunday.
