The pre- and post-event images of NASA's Black Marble product suite show the artificial lights at night from Panama City, FL and Mexico Beach, FL based on data collected on October 6 and October 12, 2018. NASA's Black Marble product suite has immediate access to data documenting disruptions in energy infrastructure and utility services due to Hurricane Michael. The pre and post event images in Florida are based on the composite Black Marble images. The fine resolution images show artificial lights at night prior to and after the arrival of Hurricane Michael. Areas in high-light condition are in red and yellow, while areas in low-light condition are in blue and black. The Black Marble Level 3 and High Definition (HD) data are continuously being produced and delivered to end-users for the latest day available.
