Typhoon YUTU (known as Rosita in the Philippines) is now threatening the Philippine Island of Luzon. On October 24, 2018 YUTU devastated the northern Mariana Islands of Tinian and Saipan as a super typhoon. One death has been attributed to the typhoon in the Marianas with many structures including schools and hospitals being destroyed.
On the morning of 7/9/18 the GPM Core Observatory satellite flew over powerful Typhoon Maria, observing a donut-shaped eyewall that is somewhat disconnected from the rest of the storm. Maria is likely to impact southern Ryukyu Islands before making landfall in Eastern China in the next couple days.
