This is a GREAT way to keep track in realtime of all 3 hurricanes hurdling towards the N.E. Coast of the US.

Once you click on the link there is a specialist who answers a question about such concerns as corexit and crude being swept into the inlands from a storm surge and talks about how it has basically two possible outcomes...

The term "storm surge" in casual (non-scientific) use is storm tide; that is, it refers to the rise of water associated with the storm, plus tide, wave run-up, and freshwater flooding.

In the current situation, the storm surge can do two things --- On the positive side it can disperse and dilute the oil and Corexit. On the very negative side, a storm surge can push the the crude oil, Corexit and water inland to places it has never reached before negatively affecting new ecosystems.

Either way if you look at the track of all three storms, the waves it will create are going to cause millions, billions of dollars worth of damage and evacuations look emminent.

As this site was posted by a couple members I am listing it as well to easily find. Thanks guys!

With all of the rescues going on due to Rip Tides, it is going to be a miracle if people dont start dying before the first hurricanes even hit ground.

The people who have been to these areas can see from this video the severity of the waves violence as they crash really fast intot he shorelines with a ferocious force.

Once these powerful waves sweep a person off their feet it can tumble them into the undercurrents and send them rapidly out to sea.

These Oceanic Giants out there are literally sucking everything out and that alone is a sign of whats to come...

Dozens rescued from rip currents:

that storm looks more like it is moving west. they are predicting it moves north up the east coast? I guess we will see, this storm should make the gulf show how much pollution there really is in the water.

I see you are in Montana, are you having rainy weather up your way?

Just asking because we have had that greenish, orange looking defused lighting all day with occassional heavy down pours here in Mid Missouri.

All of the winds seem to be coming from the Gulf Stream.

Very cool interactive site.

I do apologize for my confusion, what are the 3 hurricanes you are referring? As far as I know only Hurricane Earl is floating around out in the ocean. T.S. Bonnie (as reflected in your title) was about a month ago is no longer an issue as that storm has broken up.

Am I missing something?

Thanks for asking
If you scroll down on the page you will find the interactive live tracker, you can then click on the arrow links to move right or left on the screen, you will see the different hurricanes listed by name, there is Earl, Fiona and Gaston.

I went ahead and fixed the "bonnie' issue above as well to save confusion but that was what it was called...

They probably have bigger and better ones on the Hurricane 2010 watch thread, but if you jump in there it can be confusing to find what your looking for so I found this one and if for no other reason than to find it again over the next few days it will be here.

Lionrock is strangly enough not visseble on 'stormpulse' but it is at my aplication 'earth alerts'

'Earth alerts' is a great aplication wich you can download at your computer.

Google 'Earth alerts 2010 aplication' and download it to your pc.

By the way, I was to hasty.... Lionrock is a tropical storm east - north east of Hong kong.....

So sorry about that...

posted on Sep, 1 2010 @ 06:26 PM
Gaston - another one! I check stormpulse several times a day and didn't see this one earlier. I was concentrating on Earl - last I heard on my weather channel that they expected Earl to turn more towards the north but so far it wasn't doing so. I do hope everyone is getting prepared and on safe ground. Thanks OP for the links and info.

Great link, I may post it in the OP if thats cool with you?

As for Lionrock,
this hurricane swatch seems like when too many kids all get in the swimming pool at the same time! This is really fasinating but seriously dangerous.

Earl still strengthening.

HURRICANE EARL As of 5 am EDT Thursday Hurricane Earl was located about 410 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina with top winds near 145 mph. Earl is a category 4 on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale.

Some minor fluctuations in strength are possible over the next 24 hours. Earl is moving toward the north-northwest at 18 mph. It is expected to gradually turn to the north tomorrow. A hurricane warning is in effect for Bogue Inlet, NC northeastward to the NC/VA border, including the Pamlico and Abermarle Sounds.

A hurricane watch is in effect for north of the NC/VA border to Cape Henlopen, DE and from Westport to Plymouth, MA, including Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. A tropical storm warning is in effect from Cape Fear to west of Bogue Inlet, NC and from the NC/VA border to Sandy Hook, NJ, including Delaware Bay south of Slaughter Beach and the Chesapeake Bay south of New Point Comfort and the coast of Long Island, NY from Fire Island Inlet northward and eastward to Port Jefferson Harbor.

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

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

I am not so much worried about Earl making landfall as I am about WHERE Earl may make landfall.

There are many cities that could be effected by the Storm Surge alone, Philadelphia PA, Trenton NJ, and Manhattan N.Y. immediately come to mind.

This idea was explored by a series on The Weather Channel called, "It Could Happen Tomorrow". Sadly I do not have time to find a link to the actual episode ( I have to get to work) so maybe someone else may be able to. However, the episode was about what would happen if a Cat 3 Hurricane were to make landfall in Manhattan NY
