On August 27th the projected path of Tropical Storm Danny is going to stay to the east of Florida and go up the coast of the United States. At least that is what the National Hurricane Center's cone shows. We could use some nice soaking rains, and, in fact, one is falling even as I type this. But I think that is just one of our typical summer storms and has nothing to do with Danny. If you click on the image to the left a larger version should open up in a new window for you.
However, do keep in mind that these storms can often modify their paths and do strange things. I have even seen them do loops out in the ocean and come back again. At times they will weaken only to gain strength again. So do stay aware of approaching storms.
For even more infomation you may also want to visit the National Hurricane Center by CLICKING HERE Make it one of your favorites so you can visit it from time-to-time. They follow each depression, tropical storm and hurricane as they approach the United States. They also offer a variety of maps similar to the one above that can tell you where the storm may go, how strong the winds are, etc. It can be a very interesting site, especially for those of you who own homes here in Florida.
If you have not already done so, you may want to get prepared. Waiting until the last minute could be too late. Even if it turns out to be a false alarm, all of the canned food and bottled water can be eaten in the fall and winter when severe storms no longer threaten us.
