On September 22, 2020, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite acquired this late-morning natural-color image as Hurricane Teddy approached the Canadian Maritimes. The U.S. National Hurricane Center warned of heavy rain and strong winds across the region, as well as large, destructive waves on the south coast of Nova Scotia. As the storm transitioned to an extratropical cyclone, storm warnings were posted for Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, and the Magdalen Islands.
At 5 p.m. Atlantic Standard Time on September 22, Teddy was centered about 390 kilometers (245 miles) south of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Sustained winds were estimated at 150 kilometers (90 miles) per hour.
