Caption: Hurricane Roxanne. Coloured infrared satellite image of hurricane Roxanne over the Caribbean sea. The coasts of the Yucatan peninsula, Mexico (at lower left) and Cuba (at upper right) have been outlined as green lines. The hurricane is the swirl of clouds surrounding the central "eye". The "eye" is comprised of relatively calm, cloud-free air at a very low pressure. Around this "eye" are heavily-clouded areas which feature strong winds and heavy rain. Roxanne's winds travelled at 184 kilometres per hour and the hurricane killed 14 people in Mexico. Image taken by the Geostationary Operational Environment Satellite (GOES) on 10 October 1995; the resolution is 2 kilometres.
