After Hurricane Bill now Tropical Storm Danny seems to be threatening the east coast of the US. According to calculations of National Hurricane Center (NHC) this storm might make landfall somewhere in Canada. Interests in north east US and Canada should remain vigilant. Tropical Storm Danny isn’t expected to reach category 1 status.
Tropical Storm Danny isn’t forming any threat to the Caribbean and Aruba. Meanwhile, there is another system forming in the Atlantic Ocean (marked orange in above image). NHC writes that the environmental conditions appears to be favorable for this system to form into a storm in the coming days.
Hurricane Season 2009 has had a slow start, but within a time span of only two weeks the fourth named storm has formed. The ocean water is warm, thus favorable for more systems to grow. As always, as Caribbean islanders, we remain alert for these systems.
