Weather of Arabia - Sinan Khalaf - The latest satellite images received by us in Arabia Weather show the magnitude of the eye of Hurricane Khanun , which is currently centered in the China Sea to the northwest of the Japanese Okinawa Islands, which exceeds an area of 35 km in diameter, and this area is approximately equal to the area of some diameter Arab capitals such as the Saudi capital, Riyadh, although the hurricane's strength has receded, except for the third degree, but it still possesses enormous destructive power, accompanied by strong winds and heavy rains.

 

The eye of Typhoon Khanun , which is classified as Category 3 at the time of preparing this report, is located to the west of the Japanese Okinawa Islands, 180 km away from it, with winds exceeding 180 km/h and massive amounts of rain.

 

How is the weather inside Cyclone Khanoun?

 

The eye of cyclone Khanoun and other hurricanes are always characterized by stable weather and very calm wind speeds, in addition to being completely free of clouds. The size of the eye of the hurricane increases as its strength increases, and the winds rotate around the eye counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere and the opposite occurs in the southern hemisphere.

 

Cyclone Wall Khanun

 

The wall of Hurricane Khanoun , as is the case in all hurricanes, is the most troubled area of the hurricane. It is the region that surrounds the eye of the hurricane and has the strongest and most violent winds, and it has cloudy clouds from which heavy rain falls and there are upward air currents.

 

The gusts may reach 225-360 km/h in a violent hurricane, and strong winds lead to sea turmoil and high waves that may reach six meters or more in height, demolishing homes, destroying facilities, uprooting trees, telephone and electricity poles, killing people and disrupting life.
