The 2011 Pacific hurricane season was already active from the season's official start on May 15. In June, the Pacific threw out Hurricane Adrian, a tip-top annular category 4 and Hurricane Beatriz, a minimal hurricane that made landfall on Mexico and shortly dissipated thereafter. July, although still early in the season, was even more powerful, tossing out Hurricane Calvin, a storm the defied predictions by becoming a hurricane, and Major Hurricane Dora, one that rapidly intensified to near category 5 strength.

In the final days of July, the Pacific blasted out one more for the month. She was named Eugene. At first, Eugene was expected to peak as a 100 mph category 2. However, as August got its feet on, Eugene exploded onto the field to a major hurricane with winds of 125 mph and a pressure of 949 mbar.

This fantastic image, taken by the MODIS on NASA's Terra satellite, shows the annular Eugene making way across the Pacific while at category 3 strength.
