Tropical Cyclone Anais

Anais formed as a tropical storm over the southern Indian Ocean on October 12, 2012, and strengthened into a tropical cyclone the next day. By October 15, 2012, the U.S. Navy’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) reported that Anais had maximum sustained winds of 185 km/h and gusts up to 230 km/h. The storm was located about 1000 km southwest of Diego Garcia. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite captured this natural-color image of Anais on October 14. The storm sported an open eye that allowed the satellite sensor a clear view to the ocean surface.
