Satellite Imagery Shows Hurricane Earl Moving Through Atlantic Ocean

Hurricane Earl affected the east coast of the United States as it moved away from Bermuda on Friday, September 9, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

The NHC said that Earl would likely become a “powerful post-tropical cyclone” by Saturday.

Satellite imagery posted by the NOAA Satellites, which they said was taken on Friday, “from more than 22,000 miles up,” shows “Hurricane Earl as it churns over the Atlantic.”

The hurricane’s swells may cause “life-threatening surf and rip current conditions” in Bermuda and on the east coast of the United States, according to the NHC. Credit: NOAA Satellites via Storyful
