Twin Typhoons Headed for Double China Landfall

This impressive satellite image shows two typhoons headed for a double China landfall. At the time the MODIS instrument on NASA's Terra satellite captured the image (August 1st), Typhoon Saola was approaching Taiwan, and Typhoon Damrey was approaching southern Japan.
Both of the typhoons did end up hitting China. Both storms were around tropical storm strength - about 60 mph - when they made landfall. Accuweather reports that Typhoon Damrey made landfall about 200 miles north of Shanghai on Thursday night. Typhoon Saola hit China to the south of Shanghai on early Friday after first hitting northeastern Taiwan on Thursday.
A double whammy like two typhoons hitting land in close proximity in time and place is rare.
In recruitment the closest similar result is when you recommend two top candidates to a client for a critical role, with high confidence that one will surely be selected -- only to discover that two job offers will be extened because both of your candidates WOWed the employer motivating two impressive hires...and invoices.
Love it when that happens.
