Hurricane Sandy (Atlantic Ocean)

“This 3-D view of Hurricane Sandy was created from NASA's TRMM satellite on the Oct. 26, also using TRMM Precipitation Radar (PR) data that showed that the thunderstorms north of Sandy's center of circulation, reached heights of a little above 11km (~6.8 mile). Radar reflectivity indicated moderate to heavy rain showers in that area. 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.”
