This is a link to a story about Hurricane Catalina which hit Brazil last week. Just click on the photo above to go to the story.
The photo is courtesy of the astronauts aboard the International Space Station, Alpha. The hurricane is unique because it is the first ever known to develop in the South Atlantic. Look closele at the picture. You can see that it is spinning in reverse. No, it is not being driven by a Dominican.
I have heard people comment that this event portends bad news for the 2004 hurricane season here which begins in 2004. I do not believe this has any bearing on our tropical forecast as the conditions needed to produce such a storm are quite unique.
Still, it's a great photo!
