Hurricane Claudette
The crew of the International Space Station had a great seat from which to observe tropical storm Claudette as it became a Category I hurricane. The storm came ashore with high winds up to 80 miles per hour and heavy rains that also drenched their Houston home base and the Coastal Bend of Texas. This digital image was recorded at 13:26:36 GMT, July 15, 2003. The view looks north from the coast near Brownsville at the Texas-Mexico border. The western-most feeder bands had already crossed the coastline. Claudette made landfall near Matagorda Bay shortly after this image was taken.

Astronaut photograph ISS007-E-10244 was taken with an electronic still camera equipped with an 50 mm lens on July 15, 2003 at 13:26:36 GMT. The image is provided by the Earth Sciences and Image Analysis Laboratory at Johnson Space Center. Additional images taken by astronauts and cosmonauts can be viewed at the NASA-JSC Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth.
