Tropical Storm Lane Featured 18 Oct 2002 Image

Tropical Storm Lane

Tropical Storm Lane, true-colour satellite image. This cyclonic storm began as Tropical Depression 14-E on 5 September 2000, over the Pacific Ocean around 200 miles off the Mexican coast. It made a westwards clockwise loop and intensified into a hurricane by 10 September, as it headed towards Baja California, Mexico (top right). It brushed the coast with tropical storm winds, as stronger hurricane winds remained off-shore. It weakened to a tropical depression by 13 September, and broke up to bring heavy rain to the western USA from 14- 15 September.
