The other two super typhoons of 2005 were Haitang and Talim.
Typhoon Longwang was a small but well-organized and powerful storm system when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image at 12:50 p.m. local time, on September 27, 2005. NASA-NOAA satellite Suomi-NPP, and MODIS Aqua and Terra provide continuous imagery for “AM” at local 10:30am, and “PM” at local 1:30pm. After crossing Taiwan, the storm would later weaken to a Category 1 typhoon before hitting mainland China. A sizeable area of very intense rain (dark red area) is present in the eastern half of the eyewall. Storm tracks and forecast maps are created using the most recent data from NHC, JTWC and IBTrACS.
Longwang was first identified as a tropical depression on September 25 north of the Mariana Islands.

Typhoon Longwang, which means “dragon king” in Mandarin, became the third super typhoon this year to hit Taiwan and continue on to make landfall in China. The TRMM satellite has been measuring rainfall over the tropics since its launch in 1997. Atmosphere TRMM is a joint mission between NASA and the Japanese space agency JAXA. The western half of the eyewall is already over the coast while the center sits just
