Hurricane Norbert

At the time that this MODIS image was collected on October 8, 2008, Hurricane Norbert was a Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 135 miles per hour. The storm weakened before it crossed the Baja California Peninsula and the Gulf of California (visible in the foreground) on Saturday, October 11 and then continued across Mexico toward western Texas -- weakening further as it went.
