Packing sustained winds of 212 km/hr (132 mph), Tropical Cyclone Inigo is tracking to the west-southwest at 9 km/hr (6 mph). Inigo is expected to intensify over the next 12 hours and then hold intensity through the next 48 hours. This true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image of Inigo was acquired by the Aqua satellite on April 2, 2003. The high-resolution image provided above is 1000 meters per pixel. The MODIS Rapid Response System provides this image at MODIS' maximum spatial resolution of 250 meters.
