Hurricane update - 9 September

Hurricane Ike is wandering off the south Cuban coast, rattling the tiles in Havana on the other side of the island. The storm will head further west, before reploughing the furrow left by Gustav 10 days ago. Where final landfall will occur along the Gulf coast is as yet unclear. If you want to keep abreast with the aftermath of Ike in the Caribbean, Bahamas and Turks & Caicos Islands, check out the stormcarib.com network.

Whilst monitoring Ike, we also have to keep an eye on Sinlaku, a tropical storm which spawned in the Pacific yesterday and will reach typhoon strength in a few hours from now. This system will speed northnortheast towards Japan, possibly dealing Okinawa a hammerblow of 110 knots of wind.
