NASA satellites show "hot towers" of Hurricane Isaac

Two hours before Hurricane Isaac made landfall on 28 August 2012, a satellite orbiting hundreds of miles above the storm used a radar instrument to map its inner structure. The instrument on the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) observed two extremely tall complexes of thunderheads called hot towers in the eyewall, a sign that the storm was strengthening.
