Tropical Cyclone Habana

On March 12, 2021, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer
(MODIS) on board NASA’s Aqua satellite acquired a striking true-color
image of Tropical Cyclone Habana as it spun over the Indian Ocean.

The storm was named on March 4, after an area of disturbed weather
strengthened enough to reach tropical storm status. It rapidly
intensified, reaching maximum sustained winds of about 145 mph (233
km/h) on March 5. After weakening and turning, Habana once again
intensified reaching peak strength on March 10, with one-minute
sustained winds of 155 mph (250 km/h), placing it as a strong Category
4 storm on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

At 1800 UTC on March 12 (1:00 p.m. EST), the Joint Typhoon Warning
Center (JTWC) reported that Tropical Cyclone Habana was located about
883 miles (1,421 km) east of Port Louis, Mauritius and was tracking
south-southwestward over open water. The storm’s winds had dropped to
115 mph (185 km/h). The JTWC stated that satellite imagery indicates
the system has peaked and is on the decline, with convection becoming
more ragged. Tropical Cyclone Habana is expected to slowly weaken over
the next several days, with no hazards to land.
