Caption: Hurricane Charley (centre right) in the Caribbean Sea, on 12th August 2004. At this point Charley was just off the coast of Cuba. He hit Cuba the following morning and headed for the US state of Florida. Hurricanes are enormous rotating storm systems in which winds can reach over 240 kilometres per hour. They can cause immense damage if they hit built-up areas, but lose energy quickly over land. At the time this image was taken Charley was classified as a type 2 hurricane. Image taken from the International Space Station.
