Satellites show Hurricane Madeline weakening upon approach to Hawaii
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Hurricane Madeline was a powerful Category 4 storm that has now weakened to a Category 1 storm as it nears the Big Island of Hawaii. NOAA's GOES-East satellite has been continuously capturing imagery of the storm that showed the structure has been weakening. Two NASA satellites confirmed that the storm was weakening.
