Though uncommon, hurricanes and cyclones sometimes die and quickly reform. That's what Tropical Storm Aere did recently.
As evidenced by images captured by NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite, the "zombie storm" is now headed for Vietnam.
Suomi NPP and its Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite instrument imaged the storm on October 13 while passing over Southeast Asia. The weather satellite orbits Earth 14 times every day.
The new image shows the storm's center just east of Vietnam, with heavy storm clouds branching out across the South China Sea. The storm is currently moving west at 14 knots and sustaining winds of 28 miles per hour.
Forecasts suggest the center of the zombie storm will make landfall just north of Hue, Vietnam, and continue to move west across Laos and Thailand as it dissipates and once more and becomes a remnant low pressure area.
