Tropical Storm Beryl as it made landfall in Florida on Sunday. From our Aqua satellite.

Beryl first formed as a subtropical storm over the Atlantic Ocean on May 25, 2012. The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) tracked the storm’s progress, and at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on May 27, the NHC announced that the storm was located roughly 110 miles (175 kilometers) east of Jacksonville, Florida. Having strengthened into a tropical storm, Beryl had maximum sustained winds of 65 miles (100 kilometers) per hour. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this natural-color image of Beryl on May 27, around 2:30 p.m. EDT. Beryl was making landfall along Florida’s east coast. The NHC warned that the hazards affecting land included high winds and flooding resulting from a combination of the storm surge and the tide.
