NASA Map of Atlantic Hurricanes in 2010

NASA Earth Observatory created a map of hurricane tracks, rainfall and storm intensity for the 2010 season. The map shows the paths taken by the storms and the rainfall associated with each storm in 2010. It is based on data from the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite. Although most of the major storms missed the continental United States, curving back out to sea instead, hurricanes and tropical storms caused major damage to Haiti, eastern Mexico, and Central America.
