Named Storm: 'Dolly'

Discussion in 'Tropical Systems' started by Pastor Gary, Jul 20, 2008.

  1. Named Storm: 'Dolly'

    Tropical Storm Dolly formed from a tropical low pressure area today very rapidly. The storm is located in the northwestern Caribbean off the coast of Honduras and is moving in a generally northwest direction. Maximum sustained winds at this hour are hovering around 48 MPH with gusting to near 60. This storm will encounter the land mass of the Yucatan Peninsula this evening and an upper level low pressure area over Texas early this week which will not allow the convection needed to intensify. A south Texas or northern Mexico landfall is anticipated sometime between Wednesday and Friday of this coming week. Persons along the Gulf Coast of the US from southwestern Mississippi to the Mexico/Texas border should monitor local media for this storm's progress, track changes and for local safety information. We will post unofficial updated information as necessary.

  2. An overnight development in the track and projections concerning Tropical Storm Dolly -

    One of the weather components that the computer models had shown to have an influence on the storm and to keep this storm from intensifying once it moves into the Gulf of Mexico has weakened. Therefore, as Dolly comes off the Yucatan Peninsula and into the Gulf, the storm has the potential to build to possible hurricane force. The anticipated forward speed to the west-northwest has not changed and since the deep convection will not be significantly interrupted by wind shear at the upper levels, intensification has a moderate probability over the next 36 to 48 hours. Once again, persons in Gulf Coastal areas from southeastern Mississippi to the Mexico/Texas border should monitor this storm's progress. For up to the minute details on this and other Tropical systems, please use the official NOAA link below.

  3. HURRICANE DOLLY : Update 16:30 Hrs USA CDT 22 July 2008

    Tropical Storm Dolly intensified to Hurricane levels an hour ago. This storm is approximately 130 miles southeast of the Texas / Mexico border moving northwest at 10 MPH. Central core winds are sustained at 78 MPH with gusting in the central bands to near 100 MPH. The storm will continue on it's track and forward speed and will make landfall between Corpus Christi and Brownsville near mid day on Wednesday, July 23. Persons all along the Texas coastline are being told to listen to local media and Emergency Operations Center bulletins concerning evauations and evacuation routes inland. Rain bands are coming ashore as far east as the Florida Panhandle and through southern Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and most of Gulf Coastal Texas.

    We will post an update near the time of coastal landfall on Wednesday. Until then, use the official NOAA link below for up to the minute official information.

  4. HURRICANE DOLLY Update 05:30 AM, 23 July, 2008

    Hurricane Dolly is approaching the Texas / Mexico border coastline and is about 50 miles east-southeast of Brownsville Texas at 05:30 AM. Category 1 Hurricane force winds will be felt in the Brownsville area within the next couple of hours with storm center landfall taking place shortly thereafter. Emergency Operations Centers from Brownsville to Corpus Christi are warning coastal residents to expect a 6 foot storm surge above high tide levels and very high, destructive waves with beach errosion and wind driven debris. These winds will be in excess of 85 MPH with gusting to near 110 MPH. The rainfall totals in the area of landfall and to the north could excede 10 to 15 inches, so flooding will be evident, especially along the Rio Grande River. Powerlines will be damaged and many trees will be blown over. Persons in the path of this Hurricane should already be evacuated from coastal areas and anyone remaining in the area should be monitoring media and NWS updates. We will post a recap of this Hurricane's effects later today.

    Hurricane Dolly made landfall at 12:00 noon today approximately 19 miles north of Brownsville, Texas, as a mid level Category 2 storm with central winds at 107 MPH and gusting to 129. There have been many power outages throughout southeastern Texas and flooding has occurred in coastal areas.

    Texas Emergency Operations Centers in the area have been dealing with emergency calls for assistance from citizens who did not evacuate. Power lines are down, trees are blocking many main and secondary roads and flooding is on-going.

    For persons in the affected area, further official local updates can be obtained through your local media stations. Hurricane Dolly's wind and rain effects will linger through Thursday with some relief on Friday. Use the link below for any additional local information from NOAA. This will be our last Named Storm Dolly update.
