GOES-16 captured this geocolor imagery of Hurricane Irma -- now located 115 miles southeast of Key West Florida -- on the afternoon of September 9, 2017. Currently a category 3 storm, Irma has maximum sustained winds near 125 mph with higher gusts. However, forecasters expect Irma to restrengthen once it moves away from Cuba, and remain a powerful hurricane as it approaches Florida. Geocolor imagery displays geostationary satellite data in different ways depending on whether it is day or night. This loop offers a blend of both, with nightime imagery at the beginning and daytime thereafter.

GOES-16 captured this geocolor imagery of Hurricane Irma along the north coast of Cuba on the morning of September 9, 2017. Forecasters with the National Hurricane Center say the core of Irma will reach the Florida Keys Sunday morning (9/10). The hurricane is expected to be near the southwest coast of Florida Sunday afternoon.
A horse was found in floodwater near the Arkema ammonia plant in Crosby, Texas on Wednesday, August 30. This footage was livestreamed by Texas State Representative Briscoe Cain, who participated in the rescue and said that people living near the plant were forced to evacuate and abandon their livestock. In the comments section of a photo also uploaded by Cain, the Representative wrote that the horse had “burns on her leg from standing in water for two days. She has hoof-rot and will need a lot of help."
The fiercest hurricane to hit the U.S. in more than a decade came ashore late Friday as a mammoth Category 4 storm with 130 mph (209 kph) winds. Here's a look at the aftermath around Corpus Christi, Texas and Aransas Pass, Texas.
This visible imagery from GOES-16 shows the rough texture of the cloud tops in the storms associated with the strengthening Tropical Storm Harvey (now a hurricane). This rough texture is indicative of strong vertical updrafts, which are a characteristic of intense storm activity. As of 10:00 am (CDT), Harvey was located about 365 miles south-southeast of Corpus Christi, Texas, and had maximum sustained winds near 65 mph with higher gusts.
The skies over Charlotte Saturday were populated by an unusual sight — eight C-130 Hercules planes in the North Carolina Air National Guard’s 145th Airlift Wing.
They flew in formation at only about 1,000 feet to train and to celebrate the mission of the C-130 unit. The planes left the Charlotte Air National Guard base at Charlotte Douglas International Airport in the early afternoon and flew to a Guard base in Stanly County to conduct a simulated cargo drop, probably pallets of sandbags, Capt. Monica Ebert of the N.C. Air National Guard said.
The planes then flew over the skyline as they returned to Charlotte.
