Named Storm Danny Tropical Storm Danny formed in the Bahamas from a tropical low pressure area this morning. Danny is moving west-northwest at just under 20 MPH and will strengthen to Hurricane status within the next 18 to 36 hours. Persons from southeastern Florida to the New England states along the US East Coast should monitor the progress of this storm carefully. Projected tracking will place Danny, as a low to mid level Hurricane, near the North Carolina/Virginia border Saturday morning, August 29. High surf, dangerous rip currents and lowlands flooding will preceed Danny as it approaches the US Coastline this weekend. Our next unofficial update will take place as conditions warrant.
