Images of the Day: Bill Became a Hurricane

TS  Bill became the first hurricane of the 2009 Atlantic hurricane season today, about 1,870 km east of the Lesser Antilles islands of the Caribbean, the national hurricane center reported.

Bill has sustained 120 kilometer per hour winds, as it races west across the Atlantic Ocean.

Bill’s strong, “twin-Engine” symmetry may help it strengthen to a major hurricane as it races west across the Atlantic.
