Hurricane update - 1 September

Regarding hurricane Gustav, there remains little to say other than to wish everyone in its path good luck. The storm will be coming ashore within the next couple of hours with winds of about 115 mph and a 10 to 15 feet storm surge.

Tropical storm Hanna is looming over the Bahamas, but its future strength and path are not certain. Landfall is foreseen somewhere between Florida and South Carolina by the end of the week, as a category 1 hurricane. Please monitor the NHC output in the coming days if you're in the southeastern US. For now, be wary if you're on the beaches there, beware of dangerous rip currents, born of swells generated by Hanna.


  1. Just had a call from my Son in Louisiana Guido.Raining there but at present all is as normal as can possibly be.!! Thank the Good Lord.I have never slept all night.Prayers for everyone  that these terrible storms soon subside .Thankyou for the update.Take Care God Bless Kath astoriasand

  2. Gustav looked pretty nasty when the reporters were doing the reporting from the storm, one of them almost blew over - or perhaps they do that for effect.  I'm not sure but I wouldn't want to be there.
