An Eye on the Tropics: Hanna, Ike and Josephine – 04-SEP-2008 10:00 PM

Tropical Storm Hanna has made her break toward the US. Landfall is expected somewhere between South Carolina and north to Virginia but surrounding areas must keep an eye on this storm.

Major Hurricane Ike is still a category 4 storm and is heading directly for the US. Models seem to vary on what will happen as it approaches the US. Ike expects to remain a major hurricane and could make US landfall early next week.

Tropical Storm Josephine is poorly organized at this time and no real strengthening is expected.

An Eye on the Tropics: Hanna, Ike and Josephine – 03-SEP-2008 10:00 PM

Three named storms are churning in the Atlantic.

Tropical Storm Hanna has been hanging around the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos. Hanna is finally giving an indication which way she will track. It does appear that the storm will stay east of South Florida and possibly make landfall in northern Florida, Georgia or South Carolina.

Hurricane Ike strengthened to a category 3. It’s way too early to determine what impact this storm will have on the US, if any.

Tropical Storm Josephine is an interesting one. AccuWeather predicts that the storm will increase to hurricane strength while other models don’t see much of a future for Josephine, predicting that the storm will weaken to a tropical depression.

Florida Governor Charlie Crist has declared a state of emergency because of Hanna.

An Eye on the Tropics: Hanna, Ike and TD10 – 02-SEP-2008 10:00 AM

The peak time of Hurricane season 2008 has begun. We have 3 named storms and a fourth on the way. All storms are included in this post.

Hurricane Hanna (currently downgraded to a tropical storm) will be making her move within the next day or two and could impact parts of the southeastern U.S. Tropical Storm Ike is churning out in the Atlantic and all models indicate that the storm will be heading toward the Caribbean and U.S, though obviously the final destination is quite uncertain at this time. Tropical Depression 10 is expected to become Josephine later today. And Tropical Depression Gustav made landfall yesterday as a category 2 storm.
