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.

Visualizing Tsunami wave height as it crossed the Pacific.
As released yesterday by the NOAA Environmental Visualization Laboratory:

Model runs from the Center for Tsunami Research at the NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory show the expected wave heights of the tsunami as it travels across the Pacific basin. The largest wave heights are expected near the earthquake epicenter, off Japan.
