Hurricane Rita Real-Time

Found a really cool Hurricane Tracking KMZ file for Google Earth. Gives windspeed, projected course, and spectral satellite imagery for hurricanes found worldwide.
In conjucntion with the awesome real-time weather tools (scroll to the bottom to find the radar and satellite mosaics for the US) found over at googleearthhacks.com. I really feel like a weatherman with these amazing tools at my disposal.

Here is an image of Hurricane Rita at 5:00 pm on Friday September 23rd:
