Hurricane Irene’s life span

September 5, 2011

Hurricane Irene spanned from Caribbean to Canada and lasted for more than a week. NASA/NOAA satellite GOES-13 kept a track of the hurricane and NASA posted a video of the hurricane dating Aug 21st to Aug 29th which covers almost entire life-span of the hurricane. In the video you can see the formation of eye (at about 30 seconds in the video). Right after the formation of eye, you can see a burst of white clouds on the right of the eye which then merges with the core of the hurricane. This burst is due to warm air rising the clouds , also called as overshooting tops, and resulting in severe rainfall. Hurricane Irene at it’s strongest was a category 3 hurricane and turned out to be one of the top ten most destructive hurricanes in the history of US since 1980. About 27 lives were lost, entire transportation system in east coast was affected and more than 5 million people lost power.
