Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco) Aftereffects

On November 11, 2020, Typhoon Ulysses (also known as Vamco) tracked westwards across the Philippines. Two days later on November 13, 2020 (roughly half a day before the storm reached Category 4 status over the South China Sea just to the west), Aqua/MODIS captured the above image of sediment resuspension and runoff immediately south of the typhoon's track.
