My Name Is Hurricane Earl

Five years after the devastating Hurricane Katrina a powerful category 4 hurricane appears to be heading toward the east coast of the United States. Hurricane Earl is the third hurricane of the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season. Forming as a Cape Verde-type hurricane from a Easterly wave associated with a monsoonal trough on August 25, it slowly organized, becoming a tropical storm later that day near the Cape Verde Islands. It maintained peak winds of 45 mph for two days, before slowly strengthening into a 60 mph tropical storm. It then maintained that wind speed for another twelve hours, before becoming the season's third hurricane.

According to online reports Hurricane Earl's projected path includes the coasts of North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Maine. The National Hurricane Center is expecting maximum wind speeds of around 130 knots (240 km/h; 150 mph). It States that the storm will move in a north-westerly manner until 08:00 AM on Thursday and then in a north-north-easterly manner. The NHC has also announced hurricane status until 08:00 AM Saturday and the storm's landfall near Nova Scotia.

If that isn't enough Tropical Storm Fiona has formed in the Atlantic Ocean. It looks like its going to be a busy remaining hurricane season.
