Over the past week, Hurricane Irene has battered Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, North Carolina, and the major metropolitan areas of the Northeast U.S. At peak intensity, Irene reached Category 3 hurricane status with sustained winds of 125 mph.
This animation of visible and infrared imagery taken every 30 minutes by the GOES-13 satellite shows Irene's evolution from her birth as a tropical wave on August 19th , the landfall events in the Caribbean, North Carolina, and New York, and the eventual dissipation on August 29, 2011.
