Tropical Cyclone Fami hovered over Madagascar and the Mozambique Channel on February 2, 2010. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this true-color image the same day.

On February 2, 2010, the U.S. Navy’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center reported that Fami was roughly 150 nautical miles (275 kilometers) southwest of Antananarivo, Madagascar. With maximum sustained winds of 30 knots (55 kilometers per hour) and gusts up to 40 knots (75 kilometers per hour), Fami was dissipating.
