Cyclone Helen Skirts Madagascar

Cyclone Helen is spinning in the Mozambique Channel between Madagascar and the African continent. Shown here in this Suomi NPP satellite image taken on March 30th, 2014 while the storm was near its peak Category 2 intensity, Cyclone Helen has since weakened while skirting the Madagascar coast. The forecast path will take the storm west into Mozambique as a tropical storm over the next few days.
