In the wake of observation of the fifth year since New Orleans was pummeled by Hurricane Katrina, a new tropical storm is building to dangerous size in the Caribbean. Tropical storm Earl is now Hurricane Earl. The storm is hurricane force. The hurricane is building in the Caribbean, and it is now a Category Three storm. Hurricane Earl is not guaranteed to hit the United States, but it’s believed that North Carolina is the most likely spot if it does.
Puerto Rico in the line of fire from Hurricane Earl
First in the Hurricane Earl projected path is Puerto Rico. Storm warnings, according to ABC, are beginning to be issued. The islands adjacent to Puerto Rico, Culebra and Vieques, both have advisories in effect. The storm has already caused damage in Antigua and caused flooding in the Leeward Islands. The Leeward Islands are part of the Lesser Antilles archipelago. The Lesser Antilles comprises a broad swath of territory, which includes islands east of Puerto Rico and north of South America. The U.S. Virgin islands are part of the Leewards. There has already been flooding there because of Hurricane Earl. The Leewards all have hurricane warnings. So far, there isn’t an extensive amount of damage. However, Hurricane Earl may do far more damage as it grows.
Will Hurricane Earl hit the U.S. coast?
There isn’t a definite Hurricane Earl projected path. The storm is on the move, and there is a significant chance it could become a Category Four. According to CNN, it is unknown whether the Hurricane Earl path will include the United States. That said, there will be some effects felt. Some ripples will definitely hit the shores of North Carolina by Labor Day Weekend. It’s anticipated that North Carolina will experience large swells and some ocean currents, but no major damage. However, Hurricane Earl 2010 could dissipate within days, or it could get worse and hit the Atlantic coast hard.
Hurricane Danielle downgraded
Another hurricane, Hurricane Danielle, has broken up. It was previously Tropical Storm Danielle. There may be some effects still from the dissipating system. However, little more than some wind and rain will result. However, the 2010 hurricane season isn’t over.
