Summary[edit]

Description
English: Hurricane Ike was bumping across Cuba on September 9, 2008, when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image. Ike hit the eastern part of the island as a Category 3 storm and weakened to a Category 1 storm as it spent its energy through wind and rainfall over the island. In the image, the eye of the storm was over the western part of the island, and the outer bands of rain clouds reached Florida in the north and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico in the west.
