Forces of nature like tropical storms and hurricanes can devastate communities and reshape landscapes. Hurricane Katrina’s powerful effects left a lasting impact on the city of New Orleans, and 16 years later the city once again braces for Ida’s torrential rains and indomitable winds.⁣

NASA observations, tracking and modeling of hurricanes utilizing satellite images and data contribute to an improved understanding of both the mysteries and effects of natural disasters to help scientists and citizens better prepare and respond.⁣
