I don't know.....I think the odds of two direct hits in one year in the Northeast are pretty low (but I'll admit not unprecedented.....there's 1955 with Connie, Diane and Edna for example)

I hope the other one projected to possibly hit TX but "only" as a Tropical Storm or "minimal" Cat 1 happens, they sure could use the rain......they already have rain and much cooler temperatures in Dallas and Houston projected from Thursday on (they've been over 100.....sometimes even around 110 virtually all month!).

There are actually 2 systems right now..one near the Cape Verde Islands and one in the Carribean

according to Weather.com, Katia is so far out to sea it will reach Cat 3 status way before US land fall.. probably won't last long enough to even come close to CT.. hopefully

Katia models are all over the place..so different than Irene ...no clue after 2 days...I doubt it would reach the Eastern Seaboard though..

Let's hope it goes out to sea... yeah, and the NE does GET hurricanes Angelic...not often but it gets them! It's the end of summer too, and the ocean's about as warm as it's going to be.. given all the warm weather this summer...

That's the last thing the state needs after last week's storm! So many ppl are out of power now, and still have trees & wires (live ones) dangling over their property...

Odds are slim of a hit..very, very slim but yes it would have a devastating impact

Track still everywhere but nudging west. The storm in the gulf will really screw up the models for Katia..
