Hurricane Lili Heads for Louisiana Landfall
April 2, 2003
Characteristics of a strengthening Category 3 Hurricane Lili are apparent in these images from the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR), including a well-developed clearing at the hurricane eye. When these views were acquired on October 2, 2002, Lili was approaching the Gulf coast of the United States and rapidly strengthening toward Category 4 status.
