For the first time ever, three Category 4 storms have formed at the same time in the Pacific

One Category 4 cyclone is bad enough, but the Pacific has had three of them at once.

This mosaic image, from NASA’s Earth Observatory, shows the presence of an unprecedented triple storm: three Category 4 storms at the same time, in the same ocean. 

They all had winds in excess of 200km/hr, but forunatetly, despite their proximity to Hawaii, non of the storms crossed its path, and they are set to dissipate without causing damage to land.
