A Mean Dean Takes Aim on Mexico's Yucatan

Hurricane Dean, expected to become a Category Five storm with maximum sustained winds of at least 135 knots (155 miles per hour), steams through the western Caribbean on its way to a projected landfall in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. In this August 20 image from NASA's QuikScat satellite, white arrows showing wind direction are superimposed on color images of wind speed.
