Aug. 27, 2011, Second Update

NASA’s Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES)-13, saw Hurricane Irene on August 27, 2011, at 10:10 a.m. EDT, after it made landfall at 8 a.m. in Cape Lookout, North Carolina. Irene's outer bands had already extended into New England. From 22,300-miles in space, Hurricane Irene looks serene and impressive. That's how NOAA's GOES satellite sees Irene today as it batters the eastern U.S. coastline, but it's quite a different story on the ground.
