Caption: Hurricane Ivan over the western peninsula of Cuba, on 13th September 2004 at 2015 GMT. Mexico (bottom left), Honduras (bottom centre), Jamaica (far left) and Florida (top centre) can be seen around the hurricane. Ivan is covering an area over 800 kilometres across. 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 5 hurricane, the most severe rating. Image taken by the NOAA-12 weather satellite.
