Great Lakes Storm of 1913 – A cyclonic blizzard (sometimes referred to as an inland hurricane) on the Great Lakes that occurred between 7 and 10 November 1913.

Hurricane Isaac at Night by NASA: Captured by Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite on the Suomi-NPP satellite at 1:57AM on 8/28/12. (The VIIRS "day-night band," detects light in a range of wavelengths from green to near-infrared and uses light intensification to enable the detection of dim signals. In this case, the clouds of Isaac were lit by moonlight.) #Hurricane_Isaac #NASA #Visible_Infrared_Imaging
