Beating on the Bahamas

Hanna has been lurking on and near the Bahamas for the last few days now as a Category 1 hurricane. The NHC forecast has it starting to move along the island chain, and eventually reaching the Charleston area as possibly a Category 2 or 3 hurricane by the end of the week.

Next week, the Bahamas may be in for more of the same from Ike. Still far too early to tell if Ike will be affecting the southeast or heading into the Gulf, but it's another one to keep a close eye on.

Then as if to remind everybody that August/September really is the peak of hurricane season, TD10 was designated with the 5AM update. it's currently located just south of the Cape Verde Islands, but may become Josephine in the next day or so.

If you haven't started doing so already, I'd say it's time to start prepping things and battening down the hatches.
