Description:National Aeronautics and Space Administration, (NASA): Hurricanes/Tropical Cyclones

Aug. 28, 2011

NASA’s Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES)-13 captured this stunning visible image of Hurricane Irene at 8:32 a.m. EDT, just 28 minutes before Irene's landfall in New York City. The image showed Irene's huge cloud cover blanketing New England, New York and over Toronto, Canada. Shadows in Irene's clouds indicate the bands of thunderstorms that surround now tropical storm Irene.
Rainfall was Irene's biggest issue, and NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission provided a look at heavy rains within the storm as it made its way from the North Carolina coast to a landfall in New York City at 9 a.m. EDT today, August 28, 2011.
