NASA tracks Hanna’s soaking path into Mexico

NASA’s Aqua satellite provided infrared data on Tropical Depression Hanna while imagery from NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP satellite was used to create an animation showing its movement from Texas to Mexico. Infrared data can reveal the location of powerful storms that generate heavy rainfall and Hanna drenched Texas upon landfall over the weekend of July 25-26.
