Caption: Hurricane Dean, satellite image. North is at top. Image obtained at 13:10 local time on 22nd August 2007 as it moves inland over Mexico after making its second landfall. At this point Dean had weakened to a Category 1 hurricane, with sustained winds of 135 kilometres per hour. Dean had made landfall on the morning of the 22nd August near the town of Tecolutla as a Category 2 hurricane. Dean made its first landfall on 21st August on Mexico's Yucatan peninsula (lower right). At the time it was a Category 5, and the first Atlantic hurricane to make landfall as a Category 5 since 1992. As it moves inland Dean will bring heavy rain with the risk of widespread flooding and mudslides. Image obtained by NOAA's Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES-12).
