Hurricanes


The hurricane season gets interesting:
NOLA needs to be worried if this track verifies. Like Katrina, a wall of water will approach and funnel into the area. Can the levy's hold? I hope so.

Much like Katrina, the fetch will be more important that the exact intensity. if the hurricane slows down in forward speed upon arrival, the water may well pile up along the SE coast of LA.

For a good chance at survival, the storm needs to make landfall in Texas. I don't see that quite happening now, but it is a distinct possibility.

In the Atlantic a few potential storms are also brewing. Keep an eye to the sky because something big is gonna happen this year.
