Typhoon NAMTHEUN has a irregular shape as seen on the visible image below. The center of circulation, which can be regarded as the eye, has surrounding clouds at just low altitudes, and rainy clouds are found only in the east. This may be the effect of two other typhoons? In any case these three typhoons are all compact but have different shapes, which shows the variety of typhoon clouds.

Typhoon NAMTHEUN was formed in East China Sea. It is surrounded by Typhoon LIONROCK and Typhoon KOMPASU, and the ground of mainland China and Taiwan, so it is expected to live at the mercy of two other typhoons.
