NASA Satellite Confirms Irene as a Big Rainmaker, She Makes Landfall in NYC

The GOES-13 satellite captured this stunning visible image of Hurricane Irene at 8:32 a.m. EDT, just 28 minutes before Irene's landfall in New York City. The image showed Irene's huge cloud cover blanketing New England, New York and over Toronto, Canada. Shadows in Irene's clouds indicate the bands of thunderstorms that surround now tropical storm Irene. (Credit: NASA/NOAA GOES Project) › Larger image
