Caption: Hurricane Linda. Coloured computer three- dimensional reconstruction, based on satellite data, of Hurricane Linda off the coast of Mexico (top right). North is towards top left. The hurricane is the swirl of clouds surrounding the central eye (lower right), an area of calmer, cloud-free air at very low pressure. Winds reached almost 190 miles per hour around the eye, making this the strongest hurricane on record in the Eastern Pacific (blue). Hurricanes form in the tropics due to large-scale evaporation and convection over warm seas. Image taken on 12 September 1997 by the American GOES-9 satellite.
