Hurricane Charley Progression

SeaWiFS tracks Hurricane Charley from August 9, 2004 to August 15, 2004. This animation zooms down to the Caribbean Sea where Hurricane Charley was first classified as a Tropical Depression. It ends in the Gulf of Maine where it lost its status as a Tropical Depression. It shows the SeaWiFS image from each day with the track of the eye of the storm overlaid on top of each image. Green denotes Tropical Depression status. Gold denotes Tropical Storm status. Red is Hurricane 1 on the Saffir Simpson scale. Orange is Hurricane 3 on the Saffir Simpson scale.
