Hurricane update - 1 September (III)

As Gustav loses the worst of its potency over Louisiana, Hanna is getting hers up over the Bahamas. Well, that ain't all folks. Tropical storm Ike formed in mid Atlantic, and the next system is brewing up near the Cape Verde islands - promising to become tropical storm Josephine. With a bit of luck, there will be 4 tropical cyclones on the maps by tomorrow morning. The Atlantic is at full throttle!


  1. I agree and so happy the levee's held up in New Orleans...but yet...what will be next, where are all these headed...what are we all in for in the coming weeks.
    Prayers that they head back out to sea...and prayers for all that have been through so much ...take care!

  2. I am glad to hear that Gustav didnt cause as much damage as anticipated. I hope and pray that all in its path stay safe
    hugs Jayne

  3. I don't think I will sleep until Nov :(

    I'm thankful Gustav wasn't as bad as predicted.

    Pooh Hugs,

  4. The evening news is on the TV now & it still looks pretty stormy in New Orleans.   The sea water is splashing over the levees.  Once again, I'm glad I live in an area where our ocean water is too cold for these storms.  Linda in Washington

  5. From another standpoint I'm not sure is proper, this is all very exciting to me.  Always was, esp as a child running through sheets of rain and peals of thunder.  Of course, when you're young, no one dies or drowns.  With all this incredible Atlantic rumbling, I know geologists are taking note.  Unusual times.  CATHY

  6. Just checking in to say hi.  We are watching a hour long special about Gustav right now.  It thankfully didn't do what they thought it would.

  7. I'm just glad I aint in or on the Atlantic !!   Love  Sybil xx

  8. Active time for weather watchers that's for sure.
