Default "Sinister-looking" satellite photo of Hurricane Matthew landfall

Saw this shared by our local NBC affiliate on Facebook, and I figure it'll make the rounds soon for some verification:

Stu Ostro posted this capture of the satellite as Hurricane Matthew made landfall in Haiti. [Un-doctored weather satellite image]



Whoops! Already covered: http://www.snopes.com/2016/10/04/sku...satellite-map/
