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.
