Ernesto passed over the Yucatán Peninsula on August 8, 2012, as the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this natural-color image. MODIS acquired this image around noon Central Daylight Time on August 8. Ernesto’s spiral arms extended over southeastern Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize.
At 10:00 a.m. CDT on August 9, 2012, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported that Tropical Storm Ernesto was located about 5 miles (10 kilometers) east of Coatzacoalcos, Mexico. The storm had maximum sustained winds of 60 miles (95 kilometers) per hour. The NHC forecast that Ernesto would move inland across southern Mexico, bringing heavy rain to the states of Veracruz, Tabasco, Puebla, and Oaxaca.

Haikui Remnants over Eastern China
acquired August 9, 2012 download large image (9 MB, JPEG, 6000x7800)
Haikui made landfall in eastern China overnight on August 7–8, 2012. When the storm came ashore, it brought trouble with it. China’s news agency Xinhua reported torrential rains, severed bridges, downed power lines, hundreds of stranded tourists, and about 1.5 million people evacuated.
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this natural-color image of Haikui’s remnants on August 9, 2012. By then, the center of the storm was west of Shanghai. Although Haikui lacked a clear eye, it retained the spiral shape typical of a strong tropical storm.
Unisys Weather reported that Haikui transitioned from a typhoon to a tropical storm on August 7, and from a tropical storm to a tropical depression on August 9. It nevertheless brought widespread damage to China’s east coast. It was the third storm to make landfall in that region in a week.
