HURRICANE HANNA UPDATE

Hurricane Hanna is strengthening and is now a Category 1 hurricane. At 5:00 PM, the center of Hurricane Hanna was located just east of Mayaguana island in the southeastern Bahamas. Hanna is moving south-southwest near 3 mph. A turn toward the west is expected tomorrow. On the forecast track, Hanna will be moving over the southeastern and central Bahamas during the next couple of days. Maximum winds are at 80 mph and higher gusts. Hurricane force winds go outward up to 70 miles to the northeast of the center, and tropical storm force winds go outward up to 160 miles.
Hanna is expected to produce rainfall amounts of 4 to 8 inches over
the central and southeastern Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos
Islands.Isolated maximum amounts of up to 12 inches
possible through Thursday. Rainfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches with
maximum amounts of up to 8 inches are expected over the mountainous
terrain of eastern Cuba and northern portions of Hispaniola. These
rains could cause life-threatening mudslides and flash flooding. Coastal storm surge flooding of 3-5 feet above normal tide levels are to be
expected in areas within the Hurricane Warning area. Swells from Hanna are expected to increase the risk of dangerous rip currents along portions of the southeastern United States coast during the next couple of days.

Would it be wise to cancel my flight tomorrow to West Palm Beach Florida? What are the chances of hurricane hitting this area based on prior alerts?

Anybody getting the effects of Hanna yet? Just talked to my sister back in MD, and they're making what preparations they can - water in the bath tub, flashlights, etc.

Best wishes to all in the path.

We are in Richmond and we have been getting rain since 5pm or so. There were spurts of hard rain and then it would subside but it is steady and hard right now. We are under a state of emergency in Virginia.

It started POURING around midnight last night here in Mass. It's been raining off and on here in my part of the world. Sun even tried to break through. It is so muggy you can cut it with a knife! Very tropical feeling. I'm being stubborn and not turning the a/c on. After experiencing south/east Texas, I know how much more horrible it could be so I try and make it through most times without the a/c.

Took most of my birdfeeders down earlier and by evening will put the rest away until tomorrow or Monday morning.

Waiting for an SOS from daughter to send the money for Ike now! I'm keeping a close eye on his path.
