KMSP - Is this hurricane season over yet? Nearly every major part of the U.S. coast that borders the warmer waters of the Atlantic Ocean has been impacted by a tropical system. First it was Texas and Louisiana, then the entire state of Florida and much of South Carolina. Then it was Puerto Rico, the coasts of North Carolina up through New Jersey and the Cape, and now the only coastal area that’s been spared from New Orleans to Mobile Alabama will take a direct hit from a likely category 2 hurricane. This storm, unlike the last several, developed fairly close to the U.S. and is on the move, traveling 20 to 30 mph most of the time… which is about double the speed of your “typical” tropical system. It’s because of this that the storm will spend be “alive” just 3 days before making landfall in the U.S. and falling apart somewhere in the Ohio Valley. The latest on the hurricanes position and forecast is located in the picture above keeping in mind that this post was written around 11am Saturday.
