We’ve got 1-2-3 storms out in the Atlantic. Two of them are currently rated as Tropical Storms. The other, Ike, is already a Category 4 hurricane. See the giant dark orange blob? That’s a big, bad looking storm. Hanna is the closest to us currently and not as organized as Ike. She’s just a Tropical Storm, for now. Josephine is out there behond Ike and not on this map, she’s a Tropical Storm, too, but it’s too soon to tell what her personality will be like when she gets closer. It doesn’t look like we’ll need to evacuate just yet, but you never know with these storms. They can change very quickly. The last hurricane to hit Charleston was Hugo in 1989. So, odds-wise, we are likely “due”. However, I am a Chicago Cubs fan–odds mean nothing to me. 🙂
I’ll keep you posted.
