Mozambique Strait - January 21st, 2009

This radar (ASAR) image shows the Mozambique Strait, between the African continent and the island of Madagascar, as Tropical Cyclone 09S (Fanele) blew through the area two days ago.

The strong winds whipped up by the cyclone caused the strait’s waters to become extremely agitated. Upon reaching Madagascar, Fanele caused widespread heavy rains and flooding on land.
