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.

A third tropical system heads for the Philippines

Tropical Depression 19W has just formed east of teh Phillipines ahead of TD 18W. Right now it appears that this storm will pass to the east of Luzon headed for Taiwan as a Typhoon. TD 19 will affect the eastern shore of Luzon about a day or less before TD 18W does.

So right now from what I see, Luzon will be swiped by one typhoon and then hit head on by a second one all within 24 hours. We will have to watch the storm path projections to see if both storms are drawn to the north or if either or both slam into this heavily devestated area.
