IT’S never been seen before: three Category 4 hurricanes marching across the Pacific at the same time. It’s an event which has Hawaii battening down the hatches.
They’re named Kilo, Ignacio, and Jimena.
An awesome image of all three parading across the Pacific was captured by NASA at the weekend.
The serene beauty of the scene belies the threat the trio pose to Hawaii, Japan, Taiwan and the Philippines.
The US Weather Channel notes it is the first time three Category 4 hurricanes have been seen at the same time. It also represents something of a leap: Three concurrent Category 3 hurricanes have not yet been recorded.
