Trio of Tropical Cyclones in the Pacific take aim at Hawaii, South Korea and Japan [View all]

Source: Washington Post

Three tropical cyclones are lined up in the Pacific Ocean, and one, Hurricane Lane, may hit Hawaii in a few days. The other two, Typhoons Soulik and Cimaron, will crash into east Asia, directly affecting South Korea and Japan later this week.

All three storms contain winds of at least 74 mph, indicating hurricane strength (typhoons and hurricanes are the same kind of storm, but have different names depending on the section of ocean they traverse). Typhoons Soulik and Cimaron are on a collision course with the Asian continent, and effects from torrential rain, strong winds, and dangerous surf appear unavoidable.

The cyclone bearing down on Japan, Soulik, is the big one, but the one near Korea, Cimaron, will hit heavily populated areas, last one was 4 years ago.
