These are the stunning images that show THREE Category 4 Hurricanes making their way across the Pacific Ocean – the FIRST time such a phenomena has ever been seen.
Hurricanes Kilo, Ignacio and Jimena were all listed as Category 4 – albeit for a brief time – and highlight the true power of the nature.
A first of nature…
Three major hurricanes – rated as Category 3 or above which means they are capable of causing major damage – had never previously been seen together.
NASA and those on board the International Space Station were able to picture the events unfolding, producing some of the stunning images seen here.
It is now ten years since Hurricane Katrina devastated the coastline of America and satellite tracking is now 40% more accurate.
Meteorologists have linked the latest storms with a stronger El Nino event this year, suggesting that more extreme weather could be seen.
Although the three storms are not expected to reach land, the images are a powerful reminder of the things beyond human control!
It’s safe to say it’s probably unwise to cruise the Pacific anytime soon…
