Newly released satellite photos show the destruction on the islands of Tinian and Saipan after Super Typhoon Yutu, the strongest storm to hit the U.S. since 1935. The islands are part of the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and are in the same island chain as Guam.
Drag the red arrows to the right to see how the powerful storm changed the landscapes of the islands in before and after picture.

Support local journalism
Studies have shown that when local journalism disappears, government financing costs go up, fewer people run for public office, elected officials become less responsive to their constituents, and voter turnout decreases. Our small nonprofit newsroom works hard every day to present local news in a deep and transparent way, without fear or favor. We also rely on donations from readers like you to keep us afloat. The more support we receive; the stronger, more sustainable our journalism becomes; the more accountable we are to you. Please consider supporting our Honolulu Civil Beat with a tax-deductible gift.
