2011 Atlantic hurricane season

The 2011 Atlantic hurricane season has started to pick up in activity.

Update on 8/4/2001 – Haiti is bracing itself for Emily as she is forecast to move slowly  across the island today. The storm is expected to bring  heavy rainfall and gusty winds.  Over half a million people still remain in tents following last January’s devastating earthquake and great risk from this storm. Mudslides and flooding are the two biggest concerns.

Update on 8/3/2011 – Emily is approaching the coast of Hispaniola.

Update on 8/2/2011 –  Tropical Storm Emily developed in the Caribbean Sea.  The storm is predicted to track northwest towards Hispaniola and later towards the Florida coast.  Heavy rainfall, coastal flooding and gusty winds are expected in areas within the storm’s path.  Any impact the storm will have on the United States remain uncertain at this time.

Update on 7/31/2011 – In late July,  Tropical Storm Don developed off the Yucatan Peninsula and moved northwest across the Gulf of Mexico.  The storm made landfall along the coast of Texas.  Originally forecast to bring much needed rainfall to drought stricken areas of the state, the storm “fizzled” out, providing little relief to most areas.

Stay tuned for further updates! DB
