Summary[edit]

Description

Typhoon Talim was a powerful super typhoon in the western Pacific when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this image on August 30, 2005. At this time, 11:00 a.m. Tokyo time, it had sustained winds of around 250 kilometers an hour (155 miles per hour) and was heading towards Taiwan at around 15 miles per hour. It was predicted to continue to build strength and strike Taiwan on September 2, and then to continue across the Taiwan Strait to make landfall again on mainland China perhaps a day later. The typhoon was at Category 4 strength as of August 30, but was expected to be a weaker Category 1 typhoon when it came ashore on the mainland.
