Hurricane Sandy (Atlantic Ocean)

“On Oct. 25 at 1425 UTC (10:25 a.m. EDT), NASA's TRMM satellite saw that rain associated with Hurricane Sandy storm's center, was moderate (in green and blue), and falling at a rate of 20 to 40 mm per hour. The heaviest rainfall at the time of this image was falling northeast of the center, at more than 2 inches/50 mm per hour (red). The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite flew above hurricane Sandy on Friday, Oct. 26 at 1509 UTC (11:09 a.m. EDT), and gathered data on rainfall and cloud heights, revealing the power within this monster storm.”
