FB page shares wrong photos of 'Hagibis'


A Facebook page shared wrong photos of what it claimed to be satellite images of supertyphoon "Hagibis."


The FB page Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa for Senator Movement captioned its Oct. 12 post:

LOOK: Satellite images ng Super Typhoon #Hagibis na nakatakdang pumasok sa bansang Japan. #PrayForJapan #LabanJapan #PrayersUpForJapan #TyphoonHagibis

Hagibis hit Japan in October 2019, leaving 87 dead.


A reverse Google image search reveals the photos are not of supertyphoon Hagibis but are satellite images of another typhoon that struck Japan in September 2018.


The photos were originally tweeted by European Space Agency astronaut Alex Gerst about supertyphoon Trami who wrote:


As if somebody pulled the planet's gigantic plug. Staring down the eye of yet another fierce storm. Category 5 Super Typhoon Trami is unstoppable and heading for Japan and Taiwan. Be safe down there! #TyphoonTrami

The photos were also posted by several other pages, which ran the same caption. These include FB pages Christopher "Bong" Go for Senator Movement, Sara "Inday" Duterte for President Movement, Buhay OFW - Mga Kwento ng Bagong Bayani, Manny Pacquiao for Vice President Movement, Laban Duterte, President Rodrigo "Rody" Duterte Supporters and Duterte Pa Rin.
