Tropics get busy; stay tuned to the 2010 Storm Surge Blog

The tropics are getting busy. This image shows the probability of tropical storm force winds impacting locations in and along the Atlantic Ocean. Hurricanes Danielle and Earl are generating strong winds over the open Atlantic waters, and creating large waves from Bermuda to Puerto Rico to the U.S. Eastern Seaboard.

As this blog focuses on storm surge in the Gulf of Mexico, information regarding these storms has not been posted. Stay tuned, though. The tropics are heating up as we approach the busiest stretch of the hurricane season, which climatologically is the first three weeks of September. This blog will update twice daily when tropical weather threatens the Gulf Coast.
