ARIA Damage Proxy Map of Southern Florida from Hurricane Irma
The Advanced Rapid Imaging and Analysis (ARIA) team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, created this Damage Proxy Map (DPM) depicting areas of Southwestern Florida, including Key West and Naples, that are likely damaged as a result of Hurricane Irma (Category 4 at landfall in Florida), shown by red and yellow pixels. The map is derived from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images from the European Space Agency's (ESA)...

GPM precipitation data from hurricane Matthew
NASA's Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core observatory satellite flew over Hurricane Matthew several times as the category 4 storm headed toward Florida. The GPM Core Observatory carries two instruments that show the location and intensity of rain and snow, which defines a crucial part of the storm structure – and how it will behave. The GPM Microwave Imager sees through the tops of clouds to observe how much and where precipitation occurs, and the Dual-frequency Precipitation Radar observes precise details of precipitation in 3-dimensions.
