The MODIS instrument flying aboard NASA's Terra satellite captured this true-color image of Hurricane Ivan on September 10, 2004 at 15:25 UTC (11:25 AM EDT). At the time this image was taken Ivan was located approximately 245 km (155 miles) southeast of Kingston, Jamaica and was moving towards the west-northwest at 19 km/hr (12 mph). Maximum sustained winds were near 230 km/hr (145 mph) with higher gusts.
When Hurricane Ivan blasted through Pensacola, Florida, it cut apart a bridge on the heavily traveled Interstate 10. The gap in the bridge is visible in this ASTER image, acquired on September 21, 2004.
