VIIRS Sees Severe Storms in the South

VIIRS Sees Severe Storms in the South

The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument aboard the NOAA/NASA Suomi NPP satellite captured this true-color image of the weather system that produced severe thunderstorms in Alabama and Georgia and at least two tornadoes on April 27, 2017. According to the National Weather Service, the storms packed strong winds of 40 to 50 miles per hour, produced pea-sized hail, and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning. The storms came six years to the day after one of the worst tornado outbreaks in U.S. history wreaked havoc in the South on April 27, 2011. In that event, storms claimed the lives of more than 300 people and caused an estimated $10 billion in damage.
