Hurricane Nate

Hurricane Nate

Tropical Storm Nate was becoming better organized on September 6, 2005, when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this image. The storm had winds of about 95 kilometers per hour (65 mph) with stronger gusts, according to the National Hurricane Center. Nate may strengthen into a weak hurricane and strike Bermuda as it moves northeast over the Atlantic Ocean.
