Mission News: Typhoon Bopha's Heavy Rain Over Mindanao
High winds, flooding and landslides from heavy rains with typhoon Bopha have caused over 300 deaths in the southern Philippines.
Mission News: Typhoon Bopha Devastates Mindanao, Moves Into Sulu Sea
Typhoon Bopha pounded the Philippines with high winds and drenching rain when it crossed the island of Mindanao today. Numerous deaths and wide spread destruction have been reported. The TRMM satellite had a good view of Bopha moving into the Sulu Sea when it flew over on December 4, 2012 at 1420 UTC. This TRMM pass showed that Bopha still had good organization but Mindanao's rugged terrain had taken it's toll.

On August 28, 2011, Tropical Storm Irene hit Vermont, causing widespread damage and the worst flooding in 75 years. Irene's impact in New England shows that tropical cyclones can greatly affect regions outside the view of TRMM. The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission will build upon TRMM's legacy by examining a larger swath of Earth with more sensitive instruments.
