satellite images show storm's destruction


hurricane harvey hit texas, north of corpus christi, as a category 4 storm on aug. 25, 2017. it was the first major hurricane to make landfall in the u.s. since hurricane wilma in 2005. harvey was also the first hurricane to hit the texas coast since hurricane ike in 2008. after making landfall, harvey weakened into a tropical storm, but stalled over the texas coast, dumping huge amounts of rain over houston and the surrounding area. in fact, scientists say flooding from harvey was unprecedented, at levels expected to be seen just once every 500,000 years, in some areas of southeast texas. here are some before-and-after satellite images of texas that show the devastation caused by harvey. in this image, the arkema plant in crosby, texas, is seen on jan. 29, 2017.

new satellite beams back its 1st photo of lightning from space


a new weather satellite promises to deliver unprecedented data on earth's lightning, and it has already captured its first spectacular images of storms from space. today (march 6), the u.s. national oceanic and atmospheric administration (noaa) released the first observations taken by the satellite's geostationary lightning mapper (glm) instrument. this image combines an hour's worth of lightning data obtained on feb. 14, according to noaa. brighter colors show where more lightning energy was recorded, with the most intense storm system located over the gulf coast of texas on that particular day.

monster hurricane irma looms in new satellite video


as hurricane irma begins to batter islands in the caribbean early wednesday morning (sept. 6), nasa and the national oceanic and atmospheric administration (noaa) are monitoring the colossal storm from space using a suite of weather satellites.  hurricane irma — a category 5 storm packing winds of up to 185 mph (300 km/h) — first made landfall over the caribbean island of barbuda around 2 a.m. edt today (sept. 6). over the next few hours, the eye of the storm continued to creep west-northwestward at a steady pace of about 16 mph (26 km/h), the national hurricane center reported. by 8 a.m. edt (1200 gmt), the storm had ravaged the islands of anguilla and st. martin/sint maarten. the suomi npp satellite flew over hurricane irma on monday (sept. 4) at approximately 12:32 a.m. edt (0432 gmt).

harvey storms into louisiana, and nasa snaps images from space


nasa satellites continue to track the path of tropical storm harvey, which made landfall in louisiana this morning (aug. 30). the sun is finally shining in houston and parts of southeast texas that are grappling with the effects of record-setting rainfall and subsequent flooding caused by harvey. the storm is expected to be downgraded to a tropical depression by this evening, nasa said, but could still dump up to 10 inches (25 centimeters) of rain in some isolated areas of louisiana.  the national oceanic and atmospheric administration (noaa) goes-east satellite captured a high-resolution image of harvey's massive, swirling white form as it crept over louisiana at 7:30 a.m. cdt (8:30 a.m. edt/1230 gmt). the center of the storm made landfall at 4 a.m. cdt (5 a.m. edt/0900 gmt), according to

tropical storm harvey has been gaining strength and will likely make landfall as a major hurricane, nasa satellite images revealed.  what started out as the remnants of a tropical storm could become the worst hurricane to hit texas in nearly 50 years and the first category 3 hurricane to hit the united states in almost 12 years, the weather channel reports.  on wednesday (aug. 23), the national hurricane center (nhc) upgraded the scattered storm remnants to a tropical depression, and by thursday (aug. 24) it started to shape up as a large "tropical cyclone" over the gulf of mexico. as always, nasa and the national oceanic and atmospheric administration (noaa) are monitoring the weather event from space with earth-observing satellites.

zap map: satellite tracks lightning for better warning


washington (ap) — a new u.s. satellite is mapping lightning flashes worldwide from above, which should provide better warning about dangerous strikes.the national oceanic and atmospheric administration on monday released the first images from a satellite launched last november that had the first lightning detector in stationary orbit. it includes bright flashes from a storm that spawned tornadoes and hail in the houston region on valentine’s day.noaa scientist steve goodman said ground radar sees lots of cloud-to-ground lightning, but this satellite provides more detailed views of lightning within clouds. cloud flashes can later turn into ground strikes, hitting people like a bolt out of the blue. scientists say this could add more warning time.earth gets about 45 lightning flashes a secon
