NASA found powerful strength formed at Typhoon Mangkhut "Ompong's" eye

NASA's Aqua satellite provided an infrared look at the Super typhoon Mangkhut "Ompong" local name, early on September 13. They found out a powerful storms that surrounds the large eye, Rob Gutro of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center said. 


The animated enhanced infrared satellite imagery shows the strength that formed, colder cloud tops mean that the uplift of air has strengthened and pushed clouds tops higher in the troposphere. The higher colder the cloud top, the stronger the storm and the greater chances for heavier rainfall.

The Philippines Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) noted that the typhoon continues to threaten Northern Luzon.

The typhoon continues to have maximum winds of 205 km/h and gustiness of up to 255 km/h.
