Tropical Cyclone Dumile (07S), can be seen east of Madagascar here. Although convection from the system is covering the islands of Mauritius and La Reunion, it is barely reaching the coast of Madagascar.

The day this image was captured, the system was reported as having maximum sustained winds of 65 knots (120 kilometers per hour) and gusts up to 80 knots (150 kilometers per hour). The system is forecast to continue moving southward before accelerating toward the southeast, with gradually decreasing wind speeds.
