I live in Mobile, AL right on the Gulf, and the moon has been an amber color for the past week. I have noticed it. But it's always amber around 9
pm then changes to bright blue/white as it moves up the sky around midnight or so. Why is this? I'm not sure, but yeah, we are prone to hurricanes
down here. Welcome to the party.
Sometimes if there's the right amount of moisture in the atmosphere the moon will have a large halo around it (not just the glow, but an actual ring
a little distance away) you see it in days before a big storm if the conditions are right. I'd say that's probably a good thing to use as a natural
warning. I don't know about the red moon, but isn't there some old nautical rhyme/warning that has to do with that?
