  • NASA images show the aftermath of Hurricane Irma

As Hurricane Irma crept toward the southwestern coast of Florida on Sunday (Sept. 10), NASA satellites provided views of the epic storm from space.

The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument aboard NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite provided a visible image of Hurricane Jose and its cloud-filled eye on September 10 at 1:12 p.m. EDT (1712 UTC). NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite provided a visible look at the storm, while the GPM satellite provided a deeper look under the high clouds that were covering the eye.

The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument aboard NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite provided a visible image of Hurricane Jose and showed that the eye had become cloud-filled eye on September 10 at 1:12 p.m. EDT (1712 UTC).

NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's Global Precipitation Measurement mission (GPM) core satellite got a closer look at what was happening with the eye.

At 11 a.m. EDT on September 11, the National Hurricane Center noted that a Storm Surge Warning is in effect for South Santee River southward to the Flagler/Volusia County line, Florida; from north of Bonita Beach to the Ochlockonee River and for Tampa Bay.

On the previous day, NASA's Aqua satellite also provided another view of the storm, measuring cloud top temperatures of clouds around and extending outward from the eye. Irma remains a large tropical cyclone. On Saturday, the storm was downgraded to a Category 3 hurricane after passing over the northern coast of Cuba, but it regained strength after passing over warm ocean waters overnight. Some cloud top temperatures in strong storms were as cold as minus 63 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 53 degrees Celsius). Some of the heavier rainfall may produce flash flooding. Max had become a hurricane at 7 a.m. CDT on September 14. That's about 55 miles (85 km) southwest of Acapulco, Mexico. Max was moving toward the east near 6 miles per hour (9 kph). Jose is then expected to move slowly toward the east and southeast Tuesday into Wednesday, making a loop.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 65 miles per hour (100 kph) with higher gusts. Steady weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours. After Max formed as a tropical storm, it appeared to have two "tails". The estimated minimum central pressure is 992 millibars.
