The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this natural-color image of Haikui at 12:35 p.m. local time on August 7, 2012. Haikui sported a well-defined eye, and its spiral arms extended far inland over eastern China. (This image is rotated slightly, and north is to the upper right.)
On August 7, the U.S. Navy’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) reported that Haikui was located about 185 nautical miles (345 kilometers) northeast of Taipei. As it had the previous day, Haikui had maximum sustained winds of 65 knots (120 kilometers per hour) with gusts up to 80 knots (150 kilometers per hour). The JTWC storm track showed Haikui making landfall south of Shanghai between August 7 and 8, 2012.
Haikui approached the coast of China in the wake of Damrey and Saola, severe storms that came ashore just days earlier.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this natural-color image of Tropical Storm Ernesto around 11:35 a.m. EDT on August 6. Although the storm lacked a distinct eye, it still sported the semicolon shape characteristic of strong storms.
In a bulletin issued shortly after MODIS acquired this image, the NHC reported that Ernesto had maximum sustained winds of 65 miles (100 kilometers) per hour. The storm was located about 160 miles (260 kilometers) east-northeast of Cabo Gracias a Dios on the Nicaragua-Honduras border. A hurricane warning was in effect for part of the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula, from Chetumal to Punta Allen. A hurricane watch was in effect for entire coast of Belize.
