Caption: Hurricane Dean, satellite image. North is at top. Image obtained at 12:57 local time on 20 August 2007 as the hurricane passed through the western Caribbean, moving from right to left. The island of Cuba is at top right, and Mexico's Yucatan peninsula is at upper left. After the eye of the hurricane passed south of Jamaica on 19 August, it strengthened to become a category 5 hurricane with wind speeds of over 250 kilometres per hour, and a diameter of hundreds of kilometres. Hurricane Dean made landfall early in the morning of 21 August, coming ashore on the Yucatan peninsula. It was the first Atlantic hurricane to hit land as a category 5 since 1992. Image from NOAA's Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES-12).
