East Coast, maybe Jersey Shore, might not like Hanna or Ike…


Accu-Weather meterologists predicted that Hanna will follow this ominous path. Only time will tell.

2008 is surely an active hurricane year.
Tropical Storm Arthur formed on the last day in May, one of only a handful of May tropical systems. Hurricane Bertha was the longest lived July storm on record, the first of a series of early and strong African “Cape Verde” storms to form. In early August, Hurricane Dolly struck the Texas coast as a Category 2. Later in August Tropical Storm Fay never made it to hurricane strength, but brought rains like those described in biblical times to Florida. Now, just three years from the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, another major hurricane, Gustav, has plowed into New Orleans, causing havoc in a city that has already seen its share of devastation.
It begins in June and ends in November, but the Atlantic hurricane season peaks September 10th. Now that we are approaching the peak, the Atlantic is active, and the East Coast of the United States, and perhaps the Jersey Shore could be in peril from the threat of a hurricane.
Hanna is the greatest
immediate threat. Computer models are predicting the possibility of a “Floyd-esque” scenario, such as was seen in 1999, where a big tropical system rides up the Eastern Seaboard. The question remains, where will the storm hit and when? If Hanna follows the expected path, it would effect this area sometime between Friday September 5th and Sunday September 7th.
Maybe Hanna will remain weak, bypass the Jersey Shore, and minimal effects will be felt. On the other hand, Hanna could grow into a huge monster and plows into the Jersey coast in an about one in two hundred chance of a major hurricane hitting this area.
(the last hit in early September 1821) The possibilities are there for both situations or somewhere in the middle. It will really be decided by how different weather systems interact with each other at a certain time.
Also at play in the Atlantic are other systems projected to develop into tropical storms. The next three names on the 2008 are: Ike, Josephine, and Kyle.


“SPAGHETTI MODELS” are predicting various scenarios for Hanna, several bad for the Jersey Shore.
