Hurricane Felix sweeps Central America

Hurricane Felix was the sixth named storm, second hurricane, and second Category 5 hurricane of the 2007 Atlantic hurricane season.

Forming from a tropical wave on August 31, it passed through the southern Windward Islands on September 1 before strengthening to attain hurricane status.

A day later on September 2, Felix rapidly strengthened into a major hurricane, and early on September 3 it was upgraded to Category 5 status; by 2100 UTC, the hurricane was downgraded to Category 4 status, but was re-upgraded by 1040 UTC, September 4, to a Category 5 hurricane.

Felix made landfall just south of the border between Nicaragua and Honduras in a region historically known as the Miskito Coast.

At least 133 deaths have been attributed to Felix.

Here are a number of photos from space and flooding caused by Hurricane Felix..
