Caption: Hurricane Felix, satellite image. North is at top. Image obtained at 18:30 GMT on 3 September 2007 as the hurricane approached Central America (left) from the Caribbean Sea, moving east to west. After the hurricane passed over the islands Bonaire and Curacao on 2 September, it increased to a category 5 hurricane with wind speeds of up to 270 kilometres per hour. It was still at its most powerful when it hit the Nicaragua-Honduras border and the eye was seen near Punta Gorda, Nicaragua, at 12:00 GMT on 4 September. Hurricane Felix followed less than a month after Hurricane Dean, which severely damaged Jamaica on 19 August 2007. Image from the MODIS instrument on NASA's Aqua satellite.
