Hurricane Jeanne spins in the Atlantic Ocean about 855 kilometers (530 miles) east of the Bahamas in this Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image, captured by NASA’s Terra satellite on September 22, 2004. Though only a Category 2 hurricane, Jeanne has already been a deadly storm. Over 700 have died in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico as a result of floods triggered by Jeanne’s torrential rains. Jeanne currently has winds of 160 kilometers per hour (100 mph) and is moving south at 7 kilometers per hour (5 mph). Though the storm’s course has not been easy to predict, the National Hurricane Center expected the storm to turn west and move towards the United States within a few days.
