With letters A through V already used up to name storms this year, hurricane season has been in full swing. Hurricane Sally is already set to lash the Gulf Coast with possible “historic flooding.” The National Hurricane Center has already issued advisories for the Atlantic with Tropical Storm Vicky, the most recent storm named, as well as Hurricane Paulette, heading northeast, and Tropical Storm Teddy expected to turn into a hurricane.
On the Pacific side, only one storm has formed, Tropical Storm Karina, however, has already started to weaken as it moves into cooler waters and a drier atmosphere in the northeast.
Hurricane Sally is forecasted to cause significant flooding from the western Florida Panhandle to far southeastern Mississippi with flood warnings extending to Mississippi, Alabama, northern Georgia and the western Carolinas.
Stay prepared with hurricane lessons learned from experienced captains.
