On Sept. 18, 2013, the Intriguing Image of the Week featured a rare moment when all the world’s oceans were relatively calm (read more). What a difference a month makes! In this week’s image, three powerful storms are shown swirling simultaneously across the Asia-Pacific region, including the deadly Tropical Cyclone Phailin, which is responsible for at least 21 deaths in India.

As Tropical Cyclone Phailin slammed into the northeast coast of India on Oct. 12, 2013, two other dangerous storms churned in the Asia-Pacific region. Typhoon Nari, which killed 13 people in the Philippines on Oct. 11, was headed for landfall in Vietnam on Oct. 14. Additionally, Typhoon Wipha, a Category 4 storm as of Oct. 14, was moving toward Japan, where it was expected to skirt Japan’s coast and back out to sea, but it could spell trouble for the stricken Fukushima nuclear complex.
