Typhoon Mindulle (10W) over the Philippines

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) onboard NASA’s Terra satellite captured this true-color image of Typhoon Mindulle on June 29, 2004, at 2:20 UTC as the storm was located approximately 450 miles south-southeast of Tapei, Taiwan. At the time this image was taken, Mindulle had sustained winds of 144 miles per hour with higher gusts to 173 miles per hour. Mindulle was expected to drift towards the west and make landfall over the northern Philippines.
