SUMMARY: NASA's Terra satellite took this true-colour photograph of Hurricane Alex, the first Atlantic storm of the season, as it grazed the side of North America. At Noon on Tuesday, August 3, the Category 2 Hurricane had wind speeds of 100 km/h (62 mph), and was disrupting North Carolina's Outer Banks; thousands are without power, and Hatteras Island's only link to the mainland has been flooded. It's currently moving east-northeast out to sea, and so far there haven't been any injuries reported.
