Gulf Coast Hurricane Tracker

A single source reference on tropical weather predictions. With a traditional focus on the upper Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast we've maintained links to track all Atlantic Basin, Caribbean and eastern Pacific storm systems. We are now expanding our view to tropical storms throughout the world intending to be a comprehensive global storm tracking resource.

Danny's storm track shifts to the east

The latest projections from the NHC show that Tropical Storm Danny's storm track has shifted more to the east. Eastern Long Island is still in the cone of uncertainty but now the coastline from North Carolina to New York is not. This does not mean that these areas a free of danger. Remember that the cone of uncertainty reflect the prediction of where the eye of the storm will travel. North Carolina, Virginia, Delaware and New Jersey will most likely see tropical storm force winds and heavy rain as Danny passes their coastlines.

Danny's path is starting to resemble that of Hurricane Bill as I stated in my last post. Remember that even though the mid-Atlantic coasts did not receive a direct hot or even a glancing blow from Bill, several people were killed as a result of this storm and the storm surge it produced. It would be prudent to expect that Danny will have at least a similar impact.
