Tropical Storm Joaquin #NASA

At 2:10 p.m. Eastern Time (18:10 UTC) on September 29, 2015, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image of Tropical Storm Joaquin. At the time, the storm was located about 650 kilometers (400 miles) east of the northwestern Bahamas, just west of this image. When this image was acquired, the storm wavered between the status of tropical depression and tropical storm. By the next day, on September 20, Joaquin had strengthened to a Category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale , with maximum sustained winds of 70 knots (80 miles per hour). The hurricane tracked toward the southwest at 5 knots (6 miles per hour).
