Combining solar and pedal power should get you through most outages
From ocean waves to sulfate gas to a nuclear bomb, plenty of crazy hurricane-killing ways have come along over the years.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's satellite rainfall product that incorporates data from satellites and observations found that Hurricane Delta was bringing along heavy rainfall as it headed to the US Gulf Coast on Oct. 9.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) The NASA-NOAA Suomi NPP satellite provided two nighttime views of Hurricane Delta as it moved toward the U.S. Gulf Coast. A moonlit image and an infrared image revealed the extent and organization of the intensifying hurricane.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite revealed that dry air is eroding Tropical Storm Norbert, located off the coast of southwestern Mexico.
It's now in the record books as the strongest storm ever named for a Greek letter.
Water-based threats like storm surge and flooding are responsible for 90% of the deaths in powerful storms — but common scales don't reflect that.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Aqua satellite analyzed the large Tropical Storm Chan-hom as it tracked through the Northwestern Pacific Ocean. Aqua imagery showed the storm was consolidating, indicating a strengthening trend.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Imagine being able to look down at a storm from orbit in space, and provide data that lets scientists calculate the rate in which rain is falling throughout it. That is what a NASA satellite rainfall product does as it incorporates data from satellites and observations. NASA found very heavy rainfall ringing around the compact eye of Major Hurricane Marie.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Tropical Storm Marie has formed in the Eastern Pacific Ocean and NASA satellite data helped confirm the strengthening of the storm. In addition, using a NASA satellite rainfall product that incorporates data from satellites and observations, NASA estimated Marie's rainfall rates the provided more clues about intensification.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Terra satellite used infrared light to identify strongest storms and coldest cloud top temperatures in Typhoon Kujira as it tracked through the northwestern Pacific Ocean.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Terra satellite obtained visible imagery of Post-Tropical Cyclone Beta as it continued moving slowly through the Tennessee Valley. Clouds associated with the low-pressure area looked like a large white blanket draped across much of the southeastern U.S.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Aqua satellite provided an infrared view of Tropical Storm Lowell that revealed the effects of outside winds battering the storm.
A satellite image shows the remnants of tropical storm Beta dumping rain over the southern U.S.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the Eastern North Pacific Ocean and captured a visible image of Tropical Storm Lowell that revealed the storm was dealing with wind shear.
A Texas city released nightmarish video this week showing piles of ants floating in floodwaters caused by Tropical Storm Beta.
Damage to coastal areas in Alabama and along the Florida Panhandle has been revealed in new aerial imagery.
In an Atlantic hurricane season that's broken records, a tropical system managed to come back to life a week after hitting Bermuda.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Hurricane Teddy has transitioned to a large post-tropical cyclone over eastern Canada. Using a NASA satellite rainfall product that incorporates data from satellites and observations, NASA estimated Teddy's rainfall rates. In addition to the heavy rainfall, Teddy causing destructive waves and strong winds today, Sept. 23, for portions of Atlantic Canada.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) NASA's Terra satellite provided a visible image of a slightly elongated Tropical Storm Dolphin as it battled wind shear upon its approach to east central Japan.
