Caption: Hurricane Ivan passing over the Cayman Islands, on 12th September 2004 at 1745 GMT. On the left of Ivan is Nicaragua and Honduras. The piece of land jutting out above them is Mexico. Cuba is at upper centre, slightly hidden by Ivan. 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 Ivan was classified as a category 4 hurricane. It caused winds of 250 kilometres per hour and submerged much of the islands. Image taken by the NOAA-12 weather satellite.
