CIMSS Satellite Loop
Tapah can be seen reaching maximum intensity as a typhoon well to the east of Saipan on Tuesday.
Typhoon Tapah brought high surf and occasionally gusty winds to Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands as it passed well to the east of the archipelago.

The tropical cyclone achieved typhoon (hurricane) strength for only a brief period of time to the northeast of Saipan, then it gradually dissipated over the cooler waters of the North Pacific.

There were no reports of damage or injures due to the remote location of the storm, which mainly threatened shipping lanes.
