Tropical Storm Dolly off the Leeward Islands

Tropical Storm Dolly can be seen heading northeast in the central Atlantic in this true-color image taken on September 2, 2002, by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), flying aboard NASA’s Terra spacecraft. When this image was taken, the storm was near its peak with gusts of up to 63 miles (100 kilometers) per hour. As of September 4, the storm has diminished to a tropical depression, packing winds of only 30 miles (45 kilometers) per hour.
