We're using our unique vantage point in space to provide observations and data of Hurricane Irma. Satellite imagery from our Aqua satellite and the Suomi NPP satellite have provided different data on the still Category 5 Hurricane Irma as it headed for the Turks and Caicos Islands. We continue to provide satellite imagery for Irma, tracking its trajectory, force and precipitation to inform forecasters at the National Hurricane Center.

As the category 5 storm approaches the Bahamas and Florida in the coming days, it will be passing over waters that are warmer than 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit)—hot enough to sustain a category 5 storm. Warm oceans, along with low wind shear, are two key ingredients that fuel and sustain hurricanes.

@aiacvila  so the colors represent intensity and severity of the storm. Green is the most mild, and black is the most extreme

😌 Right and possible.... Hurricae Jose and Tropical Storm Maria could dance the Fujiwara! 2 cyclone to become one to become supernova cyclone or hurricane. So what will happen went the music stop or fail to become one? Trial wave or Tsunami created? This is one possible of Tsunami generated. Lol... Not only earthquake can do that. 😎
