Track of TY 26W

This image shows Typhoon Bopha (TY 26W) as it passed over the Philippines and weakened to a Tropical Depression. On the day this image was captured, nearly 600 fatalities had been confirmed, and hundreds were still missing as the storm made a U-turn and threatened the country’s northwest.

The following day, Bopha weakened into a Low Pressure Area as it passed over the northern part of the Philippines. The tail end of a cold front contributed to the dissipation of the storm. Currently, 548 people are confirmed dead and 827 are missing.
