Hurricane Katia roars to Category 4 strength


www.suntimes.com

Hurricane specialist Todd Kimberlain says it’s looking less likely that Katia will hit land but that wind from the storm could still affect the U.S. East Coast as it moves north. Forecast maps show it veering to the northeast, away from the U.S. in the coming week.

Katia is centered about 450 miles south of Bermuda and is moving northwest near 10 mph.

Here we go again. Lets see how this affects Wall street tomorrow and the rest of the week.

I've been keeping a close eye on this
hurricane and hoping we see more
of a northeast turn soon. Conditions
could change and it could have an
effect on the coast more than anticipated.
Those on the east coast should keep
a close watch. Thank you OP for the
thread and the links.

What is said so far to expect swells(more now that it is upgraded) heading toward the US, etc. Looks so far it will continue it's path right into the lower half of Eastern Seaboard(barely missing N. FL).

As long as Obama is not steering it. I think we'll be ok.

Latest models have it hitting either Iceland or Britain next Monday - though of course by then it'll be just an extratropical cyclone.

I'm still waiting on the hurricane that will be the final death blow to New Orleans, you know its going to happen and frankly I dont want my tax dollars spent going to waste to rebuild it again when that money would be better suited to building them a town that can't be swallowed by the gulf of mexico. Take ancients civilizations, when disaster struck like that, they moved somewhere safer and rebuilt there.

Panic over ? Your linked story now says

Hurricane Katia weakens to a Category 3 storm..... Hurricane Katia has weakened to a Category 3 storm as it moves across the Atlantic Ocean after briefly becoming a Category 4 system.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says Katia’s maximum sustained winds early Tuesday have decreased to near 125 mph (205 kph). The hurricane center says some fluctuation in strength is possible over the next 24 hours followed by slow weakening.

I have read that Katia will not head towards land, but it seems like it certainly has a small possibility of heading in towards New York and the entire New England area.

That is one big hurricane. It keeps fluctuating between a Cat 4 and a Cat 3.
