Earth from Space: Hurricane Marilyn

Hurricane Marilyn is viewed from the space shuttle Endeavour Friday morning, Sept. 15, 1995. The hurricane was just east of Puerto Rico and moving to the northwest. The fourth hurricane to hit the Caribbean in as many weeks, Marilyn drenched Dominica, Martinique and Barbados with a half-foot of rain, and its 85 mph winds threatened the string of islands to the north and west.
