Hurricane Kate seen in the far west of this image on the day it intensified to a major hurricane, with wind speeds of 125mph. Kate then moved northward, diminishing to extratropical over a period of 3 days and dissipated a further 3 days later. A huge dust cloud can also bee seen off the west coast of Africa.
