Description

The MODIS instrument onboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured this true-color image of Hurricane Alex off the mid-Atlantic coast on August 4, 2004 at 2:15 P.M. EDT. At the time this image was taken, Alex had maximum sustained winds near 95 mph and was still on an east-northeast course at 18 mph. The Tropical Predicition Center was forecasting Alex to increase in forward speed over the next 24 hours while flucuating in intensity.

The MODIS Rapid Response System provides this image at additional resolutions and formats.
