Super Typhoon Choi-wan

This is a radar picture of Super Typhoon Choi-wan, currently with 161 miles per hour winds, in the Western Pacific. The storm, now category 5, skirted both Guam and Saipan in the CNMI so no one took a direct hit. But everyone got wet.

It is beautiful in its formation with a very clearly defined eye.

The name Choi-wan was on the preassigned list for this storm season. Apparently it is a Cantonese term for a type of cloud.

It is currently predicted that the storm will miss Japan and hit the coast of China near Hong Kong.
