GOES-16 Sees Irma's Second Landfall at Marco Island, Florida

NOAA's GOES-16 captured this geocolor image of Hurricane Irma making a second landfall near Marco Island, Florida, in the afternoon of September 10, 2017. After making landfall at Cudjoe Key at 9:10 am EDT, Irma made a second landfall on Marco Island at 3:35 p.m. A wind gust of 130 mph was reported by the Marco Island police, according to the National Weather Service.

Now a tropical storm, Irma is expected to move into southwestern Georgia later today, and move into eastern Alabama Tuesday (9/12) morning. Irma's maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 65 miles per hour with higher gusts. Continued slow weakening is forecast, and Irma is likely to become a tropical depression on Tuesday.

Created by our partners at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere, the experimental geocolor imagery enhancement displays geostationary satellite data in different ways depending on whether it is day or night. In daytime imagery, shown here, land and shallow-water features appear as they do in true-color imagery.
