NASA and NOAA satellites have provided data on Maria as it strengthened into a major Hurricane headed toward the Leeward Islands.

NASA’s Aqua satellite provided an infrared look at Maria that showed cooling cloud top temperatures and NOAA’s GOES satellite provided an animation of imagery that showed the storm developing and strengthening.

The GPM satellite found “Hot” towering clouds that indicated strengthening was occurring before Maria became a major hurricane.
