Hurricane Danny from Space
Astronauts aboard the International Space Station captured this image of Hurricane Danny moving through the Central Atlantic Ocean. At the time of the image Danny was a small Category 2 hurricane, in which hurricane-force winds only extend 15 miles from the eye.
Danny has since been downgraded to a Tropical Storm with winds of at least 50 mph reach out 60 miles from its core. Danny is currently about 350 miles (563 kilometers) east-southeast of Antigua.
Tropical storm warnings have been posted for Antigua, Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts, Nevis and Anguilla. A storm watch is in effect on St. Maarten and St. Martin, Guadeloupe, St. Barthelemy, Saba and St. Eustatius.
Danny is the fourth storm of the six-month Atlantic season, which ends on Nov. 30. It peaked as a Category 3 storm.
