Tropical Storm Zeta

Tropical Storm Zeta was one of the only Atlantic Tropical Storms in recorded history to cross over into a new year (since tropical storms are so rare in the winter in the north Atlantic). NASA occasionally releases high resolution enhanced satellite photos, and I’ve created an image overlay for Google Earth of one for Tropical Storm Zeta . The image is a 1km resolution photo courtesy of MODIS Rapid Response Project at NASA/GSFC.
You might want to try this automatic Hurricane Tracker to keep track of this and other storms around the world. Read this story for more information on this hurricane tracker.
