Print Description

NASA’s Aqua satellite acquired this natural-color image, offered by Customaps, of Cyclone Chapala in the Arabian on October 30, 2015. At the time, the tropical cyclone had sustained winds between 130 and 135 knots (150-155 miles or 240-250 kilometers per hour) and significant wave heights of 38 feet. Citizens of the arid Arabian Peninsula were bracing for strong winds, a storm surge, and extreme rainfall as the cyclone was forecast to make landfall in early November 2015.
Only two tropical cyclones have hit the Peninsula since reliable records started in 1979, and Chapala has the potential to be the strongest of them all. Weather forecasters were calling for several years’ worth of rain to fall on Yemen and Oman over the course of just two or three days.
