In light of the fact that NOAA is predicting 14 hurricanes this season with 7 of those being major storms, I thought this satellite imagery map could be usual to those who are interested. They have added a layer this year of the Gulf Oil Spill. Because I’m in the southeast U.S., I watch these maps during hurricane season. This year, however, I’ll watch with even more interest because of the possible complications from the oil spill.

If others have more maps that they watch, please post them here.

Intellicast Gulf Oil Spill Overlay Hurricane Map


The Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster continues to threaten large portions of the Gulf and perhaps Atlantic coasts. Additional concerns are growing over the possibility of hurricanes further complicating the situation and interfering with response measures. In light of this concern Intellicast has added an additional layer to your WeatherActive Map which outlines the current position of the spill based on NOAA interpretation of satellite imagery. This overlay can be plotted in conjunction with other layers or overlays such as radar and hurricane tracks. We will keep the layer active as long as the threat continues and NOAA continues to issue location estimates.

On the map I posted above, you can choose overlays to add including Titan Storm Tracking, Alerts, Earthquakes, Current Temps, Active Tropicals, and Past Tropical Tracks as well as several other layers.

When you zoom out on the map, you can help but be struck by the magnitude of the gulf oil spill in comparison to the area around it.

why is everyone being so dramatic about the oil spill and Hurricance season? in 1979 the oil spill happened during hurricance season and there were hurricanes

The hurricanes were not stronger because of the oil filled waters and the Hurricanes actually helped
