Are you aware of Typhoon Maysak’s ?

Scary.

Images of Typhoon Maysak from International Space Station (credit: ESA/NASA)

ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti has shot some awesome (and scary) images of super typhoon Maysak from the International Space Station.
The RapidScat instrument on the ISS saw Typhoon Maysak’s strongest winds wrapped tightly around its center, extending outward to over 30 miles from the eye.

With sustained winds at 160 mph, Maysak struck the Micronesian nation over the weekend, killing at least five people, according to the Associated Press, then damaged nearly everything on Ulithi, an atoll about 420 miles southwest of Guam, according to AFP.

Meanwhile, in the Philippines, authorities are preparing to evacuate thousands of people, AAP reports.
