Caption: This 3-D image of Igor's cloud heights and rainfall from NASA and JAXA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite data shows a large area of heavy rainfall (falling at about 2 inches per hour) shown here in red on Sept. 15 at 0353 UTC. The yellow and green areas indicate moderate rainfall between .78 to 1.57 inches per hour. The image reveals that Igor's eye was still very distinct but the southwestern portion of the eye wall had eroded.
