View Full Version : Discussion: Satellite Photo of Hurricane Isabel

2003-Sep-15, 08:12 PM
SUMMARY: NASA's Aqua satellite took this overhead view of Hurricane Isabel on September 14, 2003 while it was 650 km north of Puerto Rico. The image was acquired using Aqua's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). Isabel is currently a category 4 hurricane, with winds as high as 220 km/h - this is about 15 km/h slower than they were on the weekend. Residents, businesses, and even the military are taking precautions in case Isabel doesn't lose strength and hits the coast of the North America.

FYI, Google has picked up one my stories about the hurricane and there are lots of people searching for information about it. I'm channeling people to this thread, so you've got a wide audience now. :-)

Keep it up.

I noticed a sudden rise in the hits about five hours ago!
At that time there were less than 300 hits!

Thanks to "You" & NOAA... Fraser

Whew&#33; They sure make tornados look small&#33; But then, the winds of hurricane dont reach that of an F5 torando, which can have up to 300mph winds and drive straw straight through a solid brick wall&#33;

I hope you all have enjoyed these images as much as I have enjoyed sharing them&#33;
