The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite acquired this natural-color image of Hurricane Marie and the remnants of Hurricane Karina on August 26, 2014. At the time, the storm had maximum sustained winds of 85 knots (97 miles per hour), making it a category 2 hurricane.

Marie has been churning up the eastern Pacific for nearly a week, creating heavy surf and some rainstorms along the coast of Mexico and Central America. However, it is not expected to make landfall. Read more about Marie on the NASA Hurricane Page.
