Hurricane Irene Makes Landfall - Visible Satellite Image

Hurricane Irene made landfall at approximately 7:30 am EDT near Cape Lookout, North Carolina with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph (Category 1). These two NOAA GOES-13 satellite images capture Irene’s landfall moment. The first uses the visible sensor; the second is colorized infrared imagery. Hurricane warnings are in effect for much of the U.S. coast from North Carolina to Maine, as the latest National Hurricane Center’s projected path has it skirting the coast over the next 24 hours, possibly heading inland along Long Island, NY.
