ACTIVE HURRICANE TRACKS
You have several options if local or state authorities give the order to evacuate as a hurricane approaches. But timing and preparation are everything.
With a hurricane bearing down, there’s no question you’ll want to keep you and your family safe, not to mention your house – and what’s inside it. Here is how you can do that.
After a big storm, expect utilities and services to be disrupted. Here's what you need to know.
The aftermath of a storm can be more dangerous than the storm itself. Here are some tips on how to stay safe when checking for damage.
- In South Florida, Friday's “feels like” temperature could reach at least 100 along the coast and possibly into the mid-100s farther inland.
- There haven't been any tropical storms or hurricanes since Tropical Storm Elsa struck northwest Florida two weeks ago And nothing is expected for another week or more, as a global climate system causes air to sink over the Atlantic, suppressing the formation of tropical storms or hurricanes.
- The fast-moving storm Elsa lashed New York City and New England with heavy rain and high winds Friday, flooding streets, toppling trees and hindering some rail service.
- A weakened Tropical Storm Elsa will move over South Carolina and North Carolina on Thursday, pass near the eastern mid-Atlantic states by Thursday night and move near or over the northeastern United States on Friday. The storm is expected to bring storm surge, heavy rain and damaging winds to the area.
- Elsa held its strength as a Category 1 hurricane as it approached landfall Wednesday morning, likely in the Big Bend, the National Hurricane Center said.
