  • Hurricane Irma batters Cuba

    Cuba's coastline was battered Saturday by Hurricane Irma, with hurricane force winds raking the islands eastern provinces and causing storm surge of as much as 12 feet (3.6 metres). In the small coastal city of Caibarien, some 320 kilometres east of Havana, winds have downed power lines and battered homes. A storm surge has flooded the first three blocks of the town, and officials say if it rises further could put the whole town under water. Many residents refused to evacuate and are hunkered down in their homes, hoping to ride out the storm as conditions continue to deteriorate. The National Hurricane Center says Irma has weakened slightly to a Category 4 hurricane, as it moves over the Camaguey Archipelago of Cuba.

    How can you see the atmosphere? By tracking what is carried on the wind. Tiny aerosol particles such as smoke, dust, and sea salt are transported across the globe, making visible weather patterns and other normally invisible physical processes. This computer simulation allow scientists to study the physical processes in our atmosphere. By following the sea salt that is evaporated from the ocean, you can see the storms of the 2017 hurricane season.
