Hurricane Delta 2020
Hurricane Delta, the 25th named storm of the season, is expected to make landfall on the U.S. Gulf Coast on October 9, bringing life-threatening storm surges and dangerous winds. Forecasters currently expect the storm will make landfall within 50 miles (80 kilometers) of where category 4 Hurricane Laura landed earlier this season.
The NASA Earth Applied Sciences Disasters Program has activated in support of the event, and is working to determine what NASA resources and capabilities may be available to aid risk reduction, response and recovery. The Program is working with stakeholders from the State of Texas, the Louisiana National Guard and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and is providing Earth observing data products for Hurricane Delta on the NASA Disasters Mapping Portal.
