Irene Makes Landfall in North Carolina
Via NASA:

The GOES-13 satellite saw Hurricane Irene on August 27, 2011 at 10:10 a.m. EDT after it made landfall at 8 a.m. in Cape Lookout, North Carolina. Irene’s outer bands had already extended into New England. Credit: NASA/NOAA GOES Project.
From 22,300 miles in space, Hurricane Irene looks serene and impressive. That’s how NOAA’s GOES satellite sees Irene today as it batters the eastern U.S. coastline, but it’s quite a different story on the ground.
