Typhoon Nuri, November 2014

05 Nov 2014

Typhoon Nuri reached Super-Typhoon status on Sunday, November 2, 2014, tying with Typhoon Vongfong as the strongest tropical cyclone on earth in 2014. The storm weakened as it moved through the open Pacific waters, east of the Philippines and south of Japan. Both Japan and the Philippines were spared as the storm did not make landfall and moved in a northeasterly path. Nuri eventually joined up with a jet-stream and another strong disturbance and developed into a strong non-tropical storm over the Bering Sea, near the western Aleutian Islands of Alaska on November 8th. Despite hurricane-strength winds and large waves, there was no significant damage in Alaska.
