Harvey’s Strongest Storms
NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this infrared image of Tropical Storm Harvey within an hour of its landfall in southwestern Louisiana on Aug. 30. The purple shade indicates the strongest storms.
Astronaut Jack Fischer captured this image of Tropical Storm Harvey from International Space Station, sending wishes of hope and sunshine to those affected by the storm.
CloudSat Sees Tropical Storm Harvey in 3D
NASA's CloudSat satellite flew over Tropical Storm Harvey on Aug. 26 as the storm was nearly stationary over south Texas. Large amounts of liquid and ice water (denoted by the red and pink colors) are visible beneath the cloud tops. Small cumulus and cumulonimbus clouds are seen north of the area of moderate to heavy precipitation. The cirrus canopy (anvil clouds) extends outward from the storm system (shown in blue and green colors).
Harvey Rainfall on Aug. 27
NASA’s Global Precipitation Mission (GPM) Core Observatory captured these images of Hurricane Harvey on Aug. 27 at 6:45 a.m. CDT (1145 GMT) and 4:25 p.m. CDT (2125 GMT), nearly two days after the storm made landfall in Texas. The image shows rain rates derived from GPM's Microwave Imager (right) and dual-frequency precipitation radar (left) overlaid on enhanced infrared data from NOAA’s GOES East satellite.
