  1. Named Storm: 'Hanna'

    Tropical Storm Hanna Initial advisory 11:30 Hrs CDT USA 28 August 2008.

    Tropical Storm Hanna developed in the west central Atlantic a few hours ago from Tropical Depression # 8.

    Initial tracking indicates an East Coast US involvement toward the end of next week. We will track this storm's progress and will post strength changes and track changes of importance. We are mainly concentrating on Gustav and it's probable US Gulf Coast landfall in just a few days as a major hurricane. We will, however, post Hanna information as needed.

  2. TROPICAL STORM HANNA Update 10:00 Hrs CDT USA 01 September 2008.

    Tropical Storm Hanna is currently just northwest of Hispaniola and is slowly moving generally to the west with a northwest turn anticipated within 36 hours. The maximum winds are at 60 MPH and the storm is strengthening. Early projections are showing a US coastal involvement anywhere from southeastern Florida to North Carolina within the next 3 to 7 days. Heavy surf and dangerous rip currents are already being seen along the Atlantic coast of Florida.

    Additional information will be provided as necessary concerning this Tropical Storm. At the moment, we are still concerned about the effects of Hurricane Gustav. We are also watching the formation of Tropical Depression # Nine in the central Atlantic and this may possibly become Tropical Storm Ike within the next two days.

  4. TROPICAL STORM HANNA AND TROPICAL STORM IKE update 05:30 Hrs CDT USA, 03 September 2008

    Recapping BOTH storms closest to the US mainland in combined subtopics:

    HANNA is turning to the north northwest from it's location in the Bahamas. This will affect the Atlantic coast of Florida, as well as coastal Georgia and the Carolinas starting late Thursday into the weekend. Hanna is forecast to become a Cat 1 Hurricane again sometime within the next 24 hours and possibly strengthen even more. Persons in the areas mentioned above should be monitoring this storm's progression. Significant rainfall, high surf, rip currents, tornadoes, beach errosion and frequent cloud to ground lightning will be present along the east coast of the United States as this storm moves northerly along the coast over the next 5 to 8 days.

    IKE is progressing westerly and will be near where Hanna is now on Monday September 08. This storm has the potential to be a Major Hurricane with a possible track into the Gulf of Mexico by early next week. Several steering currents are going to be affecting the overall movement and it is difficult, nearly a week out, to precisely project it's path. However, persons in Florida and the Gulf Coast states should be monitoring this storm's movement as well.

  5. TROPICAL STORM HANNA Update 05:15 Hrs CDT USA 04 September 2008

    Tropical Storm Hanna is on the move. This storm is heading north northwest out of the Bahamas and will be affecting US coastal areas very soon. Persons from east central Florida to Maine along the east coast of the US should be monitoring this storm. It may make hurricane strength later today and produce high surf, very heavy rains, dangerous rip currents, possible tornadoes and beach errosion from northeast Florida to the Carolinas and later in the weekend, into New England.

  6. TROPICAL STORM HANNA information 06:00 Hrs CDT USA, 05 September 2008.

    Tropical Storm Hanna is moving northerly, well off the east coast of Florida and is causing high surf, heavy rains, tropical storm force on-shore winds northwest of the storm and beach errosion with dangerous rip currents. The actual landfall will be near the North and South Carolina border area in the late evening tonight to early morning Saturday. The storm will then weaken some and follow the east coast up into coastal New England over the weekend.

  7. TROPICAL STORM HANNA Follow-up, 04:30 Hrs CDT USA 06 September 2008.

    As predicted, the low pressure center of Hanna made landfall several hours ago at the North Carolina / South Carolina border. The storm will move quickly north and northeastward along the central Atlantic coast, Washington, D.C., and into New England by early Sunday. The storm will then cross over the Canadian Maritime Provinces and into the North Atlantic. Persons from Wilmington, North Carolina, into New England can expect flooding rains, high gusty winds, high surf, rip currents, beach errosion and some tornadic activity over the next 36 hours.

    Unless Tropical Storm Hanna drastically changes it's direction, this will most likely be our final update on this Tropical System.
