It's name is Alex and is headed for the Gulf of Mexico and the BP Oil Spill. It is a Tropical storm at the moment expected to decrease to a Tropical Depression when it make landfall over the Yucatan Peninsula then back to a Tropical Storm and possible Hurricane shortly there after when it hits the Gulf waters again. This is a very large storm and the possible damages from Alex will be something that we here have never witnessed on earth. I am sure all of us - all over the world are on edge to see what this monster will do with all the oil laying on the Gulf water's surface.

We all need to be watching this very, very closely.

Here is the latest advisory put out by NOAA - National Hurricane Center.
