The MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured this true-color image of Hurricane Ivan on Septebmer 10, 2004 at 18:30 UTC (2:30 PM EDT). At the time this image was taken Ivan was located approximately 140 km (85 miles) south-southeast of Kingston, Jamaica and was moving towards the west-northwest at 19 km/hr (12 mph). Ivan had maximum sustained winds of 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.
