Typhoon Khanun (Weather)

by dulan drift, Monday, October 16, 2017, 10:34 (34 days ago) @ dulan drift

After a brief but very intense lightning storm as a kind of closing fireworks ceremony, Khanun has finally dissipated

In the end, after days of rain, it was remarkable how suddenly the main body of the storm seemed to disappear in a puff of smoke as soon as it reached China

Once again it showed that a typhoon doesn't have to be a cat 5 to be dangerous - and the destruction can happen well away from the eye of the storm when its circulation is more disorganised

Actually a similar scenario to a typhoon that happened this time last year - typhoon tracking to the south of Taiwan, moving slowly, interacting with the north east monsoon and circulating massive raIn onto the east coast
