NASA has released images showing five of the tropical storms which have been churning up the Atlantic and Pacific oceans in the past week. Hurricanes Dorian and Juliette, along with tropical storms Fernand and Gabrielle, had formed a loose chain of cyclone activity across the western hemisphere. In the northwestern Pacific, the US space agency also captured infrared images of the recently-named tropical storm Faxai. These reveal the temperatures at the top of the storm clouds, which can be used to determine the storm’s intensity. Following the devastating landfall of Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas on September 1, NASA has also been creating damage maps to aid local recovery efforts.
