NASA captures rebirth of the Zombie Tropical Cyclone Francisco

The low-pressure location that once had Tropical Cyclone Francisco has been enduring in the southern parts of the Indian Ocean since 6 February following its weakening below the tropical cyclone status. Since 6 February, remnants of Francisco relocated into a location of warm waters and low wind shear permitting the low-pressure location to re-arrange, consolidate and re-build. Aqua satellite of NASA offered forecasters with an observable picture of the re-emerging storm.
On 14 February, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS tool that hovers aboard Aqua satellite of NASA gave an observable picture that showed the zombie storm had re-emerged a circular shape of a tropical cyclone shows that it is growing to a more organized storm. The images of satellite depict a compact system with strapping thunderstorms lasting above the low-level wind flow. Moreover, the image of the satellite microwave shows deep convective thunderstorms banding above the western semicircle engulfing into the north and east quadrants of a distinct low-level circulation center.
On 14 February, at around 4 a.m. EST (0900 UTC), the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) illustrated that the maximum sustained winds of Francisco geared back to up to 40 knots (46 mph/74 kilometers). Francisco re-emerged close to the latitude of 19.0 degrees south and the longitude of 49.3 degrees east, which is equivalent to 114 nautical miles in the east of Antananarivo, located in Madagascar. Francisco has tracked on the southwest side.
Meteo Madagascar gave a Red Vigilance Advisory for heavy rainfall within the central and eastern Madagascar that comprises of Toamasina, Mahanoro, Brickaville, and the Vatomandry Districts.
The Joint Typhoon Warning Center forecast confirmed that the system is anticipated to make a fall on land later in the day above the southeast coast of Atsinanana location, which is close to the city of Vatomandry. The city is far from the coastal city south of Toamasina. Francisco is required to deteriorate gradually as it follows inland and disperses at some time on 15 February over land.
Aqua satellite of NASA is am among the fleet of NASA satellites that offer data for the research of hurricane.
Tropical hurricanes are the most dynamic events of weather on Earth. The expertise of NASA in space and the scientific discoveries leads to essential services offered to the American citizens by other centralized agencies like hurricane weather predictions.
