Caption: Hurricane Andrew. Coloured time exposure satellite image of Hurricane Andrew. North is towards top. The hurricane, the white spiral of cloud with its clear central eye, is seen on three consecutive days moving from East to West. Oceans appear blue and vegetation green. This image shows the hurricane passing over Florida, USA, (centre) into the Gulf of Mexico (lower left). Winds reached sustained speeds of 230 kilometres per hour and caused over $20 billion of damage. The storm then travelled north to Louisiana before dispersing. The data for this image was obtained by the American GOES-7 satellite on 23-25 August 1992.
