Cyclone Evan Pounds Samoa, American Samoa

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center forecast shows that Cyclone Evan is completing its almost 180 degree turn directly over the islands of Samoa and will begin backtracking along its previous path, diverging in a few days to head directly for Fiji. Evan will strengthen as it slowly makes its way over Samoa, bringing threats of flash flooding, storm surge and high winds to the islands. This image was taken by the NOAA/NASA NPP satellite's VIIRS instrument around 1220Z on December 13, 2012.
