Hurricane Fabian

Hurricane Fabian

The MODIS instrument onboard the NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this true-color image of Hurricane Fabian 24 hours after the storm wreaked havoc on the tiny island of Bermuda. At the time this image was taken, Fabian was still packing sustained winds near 110 mph but was expected to begin weakening as it encountered cooler ocean temperatures.
