Being in the peak of Hurricane season, we usually do see a number of tropical waves coming off of Africa.

With that said, yes, it does look like another stronger wave getting ready to move out over open water.

And by the way, that other wave that I mentioned earlier is now official...Tropcial Depression #9, but it is very far away from anything right now.

Yes, that is a fourth one coming. It is not showing on the following maps - yet. I finally spoke with my sister on Martha's Vineyard. She and her family are leaving the Island tomorrow. They recieved a call last night from the local government - CODE RED. A recorded message stating code red and to prepare - water, batteries, etc.



And, this is just crazy



Please keep in mind that regardless of this Hurricane comes on land or just off the coast, the damage will be wide. When Hurricane Floyd came through, which happens to be almost the exact same path as the Duke of Earl but was much smaller and only extra tropical when it hit me here in the catskill mountains here in inland New York - did considerable damage -

looks like this thing is not losing any strength. its still a cat 4, and just got an alert that my state 'NJ' is under a tropical storm watch.

hope everyone gets away from the coast in case earl decides to make landfall.

Alright folks, decided to head out tonight. They are calling for tropical storm effects overnight, and TS can mean business. Last one, Isabel was just a TS and we were out of power for 3 weeks.

So I am heading to PA.

I wish everyone the best.


Why do I feel Gaston has been done before?

I am in Charlotte NC. What do you estimate I will see? Should I start filling up the bathtub or what? I will keep watching this thread to make sure I do not get steam rolled.

I would if I were you. Never can be to safe when it comes to monsters.

This is the current map. Be advised that these winds will be moving inland as Earl approaches - then - up the coast. Even if you are not on the shore, you need to be prepare. This monster is massive. - take the center of the color image and bring it into shore to see how far inland the winds will be
