This according to the NHC’s latest discussion on TS Erika. The storm has made its’ way through the leeward islands and should continue moving west-northwest, passing south of the Virgin Islands and most of Puerto Rico. If Erika can stay intact until it reaches Hispanola, the interaction with the big island will likely result in the disintegration of whatever is left of the storm.
Needless to say, the Atlantic Hurricane season has been relatively uneventful. I’m sure this is just fine with all living along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts of the U.S. That said, we’re not quite at the halfway point of hurricane season – that will come one week from today (9/10). So, there could be plenty more in store this year. Don’t let your guard down yet if living along the coast.
