SUMMARY: The European Space Agency is helping to track the movement of Hurricane Isabel using its ERS-2 spacecraft, and released this photo of the storm Thursday morning as it menaced the East Coast of the US. ERS-2 has also been gathering other information about the storm, including sea surface temperatures, wind and rainfall levels. Isabel is a Category 2 hurricane, and expected to make landfall in the early afternoon on Thursday in North Carolina.

Yea....about how wide are hurricanes usually? I've heard anywhere from 100 to 1000 miles....which is really big. I know though that I wouldn't want to be on the east coast now though!
