Caption: Hurricane Dean's landfall on 21 August 2007, infrared satellite image. North is at top. The hurricane made landfall in the Costa Maya region of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula (outlined) at 03:15 local time. The image is colour-coded, with the most destructive central part of the hurricane (white) surrounded by weaker storm clouds (red, green and blue). The hurricane was a Category 5, the first Atlantic hurricane to make landfall as a Category 5 since 1992. It moved in from the Caribbean (right), bringing winds of over 250 kilometres per hour and widespread flooding. The eye impacted a sparsely populated area, missing the major tourist resort of Cancun to the north. Image obtained by NOAA's GOES-12 satellite.
