Hurricane Ike is now well out over the Gulf of Mexico on its way to Texas and from all reports is no longer a threat to Florida. Unless this storm does any unusual turns, this will be my last report on Ike. You can click on the image to the left to see a larger image of the projected 5 day path as of late Wednesday, September 10, 2008.
From the maps I have seen, there are no major storms on the horizon at this point. That is good news for us here in Florida. However, the hurricane season is not over yet. So keep a watch to the news each day, just in case.
Do be aware that if storm warnings or watches go up in Florida, property insurance underwriting on new policies will likely be suspended. Most contracts used by real estate professionals in Florida address this possibility. See your real estate and insurance agent for more information.
Much of my information comes from the National Hurricane Center. They follow tropical depressions, tropical storms, and hurricanes from birth to death. It can be a useful site to visit. If you would like to try it out, click on the following link: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov I suggest you "bookmark it" or "make it a Favorite" for future reference if you live in an area that can be affected by tropical storms or hurricanes. You will find it interesting and helpful.
