🌀5pm Tropical Update [10/04] - Potential Tropical Cyclone (PTC) #26 will move thru the Caribbean early this week & will approach the northern Gulf Coast late in the week as a hurricane. NOTE: There's a LARGE amount of uncertainty in track & intensity as it moves into the Gulf.
🌊5pm Tropical Update [10/04] - While it is too early to discuss specific impacts from PTC #26, an increased risk for rip currents is expected all week (coastal flooding & heavy rain are possible late in the week). Again, impacts are heavily dependent on the track/intensity.
🌊5pm Tropical Update [10/04] - Parts of the area are already in the forecast cone for PTC #26 (next name on the list is #Delta), so now is the time to check on your preparedness kit, especially if you tapped into it during #Sally, & run through your plans...just in case.

(1) #HWstormwatch update 5.30pm EDT Thursday.

#Wilfred will likely be the name of the storm currently brewing in the Gulf. NHC says it will move NNE, which is bad news for the US Gulf coast.

#Alpha will probably be the name of the orange storm below. Future track uncertain.
(2) Post tropical storm #Sally still has a few more days of heavy rain for the Carolinas, Virginia and maybe other states. Flooding in AL and FL will take a while to go away. Please keep these & #Laura folk in your prayers, and donate if you can.

#Vicky is remnants now.
(3) Weatherfolk and Democrats are trying to talk up the danger from an above-average hurricane season but always do your own fact checking, esp. when someone is trying to provoke fear.

Most recent Atlantic storms were never a threat to the US. Numbers tell only half the story.

To the people of AL, know that we’re using every available asset & resource at the state level to support you in recovery. I assure you that we’ll be there for you as we start rebuilding our homes, businesses & communities over the coming days, weeks & months. #alwx #alpolitics
For those who’ve been directly touched by this storm, your fellow Alabamians are praying for you, & we stand ready to support you in every way humanly possible. I will visit some of our hardest hit areas & assess the damage firsthand when it is safe to do so. #alwx #alpolitics
I’ve been in frequent communication with our friends from @alabamapower & @powersouth. They hope to get their crews out today. Yesterday’s weather made it almost impossible to do anything more than provide power to hospitals, water systems & the like. #alwx #alpolitics

A barge that was knocked loose by Hurricane #Sally was thrown up against the 18th green at the Pensacola Country Club in Florida today.

(Video from Daniel Raab, who lives along the 17th fairway)

Here's that same barge today, which was knocked loose by Hurricane Sally and carried by the water all the way to the shore against the 18th green at the Pensacola County Club in Florida.

(Pic again from Daniel Raab) Image
Pretty incredible side-by-side of the course's signature 18th hole.

On the left is a promo video in which the golf pro mentions that the course went through a significant redesign after Hurricane Ivan in 2004.

On the right is the exact same spot, amid Hurricane Sally. ImageImage

#Sally continues its slow & dangerous trek inland. With max sustained winds at 105 mph, it remains a Cat 2 storm, battering the Gulf Coast with hurricane-force winds and heavy rain.

Sally's northern eyewall has made it onshore; landfall is expected w/in the next 1-2 hours or so Image
Several feet of storm surge is likely as winds from #Sally push water onshore. Image
Catastrophic and life-threatening flooding also continues as slow-moving #Sally drops inches of rain across portions of the Gulf Coast states. Several inches of rain, perhaps localized amounts of 20"+, is yet to come. Image

For anyone getting ready to sandbag [from #Louisiana thru #Mississippi. I'm going to walk you thru...step by step, how to make your home or business as waterproof as possible.

#Sally #HurricaneSally #NOLA
Step 1
Start with heavy black plastic sheeting. What you lay down in landscaping? Its ok if you don't have that, cut garbage bags length wise and use those. Next....duct tape.

#Sally #HurricaneSally #NOLA
Once the plastic is cut to size [doors/garage] duck tape it about halfway up, leaving at least a ft or more laying on the ground.

This is moving way faster than anticipated.

Tropical Storm #Sally is now a Hurricane; Serious Threat of Storm Surge, Flooding Rain Headed For Gulf Coast


Are there usually 5 named storms in the Atlantic at the same time? Asking for millions and millions of people. Image
I should have said "progressed quickly".

The wind speeds have increased, but the system has slowed from 8MPH to 6MPH and is supposed to slow further.… Image

#Sally is expected to strengthen into a hurricane before making landfall tonight in Louisiana. The worst of the storm surge, heavy rain, strong winds will be on the east side of the center of circulations. 10-20 inches of rainfall will be life threatening along the coast. ImageImageImageImage
We are also watching #Paulette moving over Bermuda, #Teddy will strengthen in the Atlantic while #Rene is weakening. Wildfire danger is ongoing across the West with high heat, low humidity, dry conditions and gusty winds. Smoke advisories are also up for several states. ImageImageImageImage

Busy times in the Atlantic Ocean. Image
Tropical Storm Sally just formed near the southern tip of Florida. Looks like it will end up as a hurricane near New Orleans, on Tuesday. Image
Latest NHC update on Sally: now forecast to hit the New Orleans area as a cat. 2 hurricane with winds of 160 km/h (100 mph). But more rapid intensification over the warm waters of the Gulf is still possible. Image

(1) Gather round for tonight's #HWstormwatch update. Getting to be too much info for one tweet at the moment.

For now, if you're in the states that are usually affected, you should be checking the forecast at least daily, if not twice a day.

Link:… Image
(2) The X is where the storm is today. The circle is where it is forecast to be in 5 days' time.

The yellow one is going to move away from the US, phew. The orange one will likely end up getting a name. #Sally #Teddy or #Vicky. Image
(3) Storms develop and worsen quickly in the Gulf. So keep watch, if you are there.

In the recent #HurricaneLaura, at least one person died 200 miles inland, from a tree falling on their home.

So the risk these days can go far inland.
