Tropical storm Irene approaches Puerto Rico (l.) in this image taken from the MODIS instrument on NASA's Aqua satellite on August 21. Categorized as a hurricane, Irene buffeted Puerto Rico with winds and torrential rain August 22, knocking out power and downing trees as it churned westward to threaten Florida by the end of the week.
