Two Named Storms, One Gulf Storm Possible Soon

A storm could threaten the Gulf of Mexico next week while another is rapidly developing off the coast of Africa, according to the National Hurricane Center.

There are currently a total of five systems on the NHC radar. Two of them, Hurricane Fiona and Tropical Storm Gaston, pose no threat to the United States. One is deep in the Atlantic Ocean heading for the Gulf of Mexico, one is in the Atlantic Ocean and one is just off the coast of Africa.

Invest 98L has the greatest potential to become a tropical cyclone in the next few days. It is currently in the Caribbean and has a predicted path to the Gulf of Mexico, but it is still too far away to predict its exact path.

It’s also possible that the wave off the coast of Africa ahead of this storm will get a name, according to weather forecaster Ryan Maue on Twitter. This wave has been developing rapidly, but is also not currently expected to become a threat to any part of the US, moving rapidly north just off the African coast, according to charts released by Maue.

Invest 98L, on the other hand, could move further west and potentially have a larger impact on Louisiana than previously thought. However, any such prediction is really just a guess, this far out. Once the storm is firmly in the Caribbean, most models would begin to show a clearer path.

KATC meteorologist Rob Perillo notes that we could see a “significant” storm entering the Gulf early to mid-next week.

We are at the peak of hurricane season with the Atlantic becoming extraordinarily more active than before, especially in relation to the very calm July and August that we experienced. While there is currently no warning for the Louisiana coast, several Gulf Coast forecasters are sounding the alarm that it’s time to really pay attention.

Hurricane preparation, what haven’t you thought of?

As word spreads that a hurricane could be threatening the Gulf Coast, we consider what it takes to make life bearable when we’re stuck at home with no power or internet.

In addition to this comfort, we must also think of the many things that we would have to take with us if we were forced to evacuate.

While we all immediately think of things like prescription medication and important papers, there are other things that can come in handy whether we’re stuck at home, a relative’s house, or an emergency shelter.

Amazing images of the aftermath of Hurricane Ida

Hurricane Ida was one of the strongest and longest-lasting major hurricanes to strike the Louisiana coast in recorded history. Due to the storm surge, Ida essentially provided itself with warm, humid air and maintained its status as a major hurricane for almost half a day. This allowed the storm to cause catastrophic damage over a longer distance and much further inland than other storms. Here are just a few of the many images that show just how powerful the storm was.
