    Could the Gulf have yet another tropical storm soon? It continued to look more likely as of Saturday night, according to the National Hurricane Center. Forecasters said Tropical Depression 28 had formed on Saturday afternoon south of Cuba. It could become Tropical Storm Zeta by Sunday and a hurricane by Tuesday, when it is expected to be in the southern Gulf. Landfall could come anywhere from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle -- including Alabama’s coast -- on Wednesday. However, it is expected weaken before then to a tropical storm.

    The 2020 Atlantic Hurricane epidemic continues for the Gulf of Mexico. Delta is currently forecast to reach hurricane strength in the Gulf of Mexico. Wearily and warily, we are once again looking at potential dueling storms in the Gulf of Mexico. There is a possibility we witness a Fujiwhara effect between Delta and Gamma.

    The Puerto Rican population in Central Florida returned to pre-Hurricane Maria levels, according to the latest American Community Survey, conducted yearly by the U.S. Census Bureau. The newest estimate of Puerto Ricans is roughly 385,000 in Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Lake counties, which is similar to before the Category 5 storm ravaged the island in mid-September 2017, driving many Puerto Ricans to Central Florida. UCF sociologist Fernando I. Rivera, founder of the Puerto Rico Research Hub, explained that Puerto Rico’s migration “is circular.” “Basically, the economic conditions are what really determine the population movement,” he said. “If you are going...

    SAN JUAN — Three years after Hurricane María, the government of Puerto Rico and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) agreed to allocate $13 billion to rebuild the electricity grid and repair educational structures destroyed by the historic storm. At a press conference in FEMA headquarters, Gov. Wanda Vázquez took the opportunity to thank the FEMA leadership in Puerto Rico and President Donald Trump for the funding obligation. Earlier, Vázquez tweeted that FEMA Administrator Pete Gaynor called her to give her the news that they had approved the multimillion-dollar allocation. “I just spoke with @FEMA_Pete notified me that we achieved...

    Tropical Storm Sally continued to strengthen as it moves toward the Gulf Coast, with the National Hurricane Center warning on Sunday that it could make landfall as a hurricane. Hurricane conditions are expected by late Monday from Grand Isle, Louisiana, to Ocean Springs, Mississippi, including the greater New Orleans area. Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards said Sally represents a "very significant threat." "We have really good reason to be concerned about this storm," Edwards said in a Sunday press briefing. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said Sunday that dangerous and "life-threatening" storm surge is expected from Louisiana to the Mississippi/Alabama...

    GALVESTON, Texas (AP) - Hurricane Laura is forecast to rapidly power up into a “catastrophic” Category 4 hurricane, even stronger than previously expected, as it churns toward Texas and Louisiana gathering wind and water that swirls over much of the Gulf of Mexico. Satellite images show that Laura has become “a formidable hurricane” in recent hours, threatening to smash homes and sink entire communities. It has undergone a remarkable intensification, “and there are no signs it will stop soon,” the National Hurricane Center said in a briefing early Wednesday. Laura’s maximum sustained winds have increased to near 110 mph (175...

    HOUSTON - In the 4 a.m. Monday update, the track of Laura moved back slightly to the west. The center of the forecast cone is now in western Louisiana, but Houston is back in the forecast cone on the far western edge. This storm has been very difficult to forecast, so it can easily shift and should be watched closely. It is still expected to pick up steam as it moves across the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. In Sunday's 10 p.m. update, Marco weakened to a tropical storm as it edged closer to the Louisiana coast. It...

    The 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season continues to heat up as we are two weeks shy of average season peak activity. Two tropical systems are taking aim at the Gulf of Mexico concurrently. Tropical Storm Laura has formed east of the Leeward Islands. Marco is approaching the Yucatan Peninsula. There is a possibility we may see the amazing Fujiwhara Effect, where two storms within 870 miles of each other will dance around each other. If one storm is significantly stronger, the weaker storm will be absorbed into the stronger storm. If the two storms are similar in size, they can gravitate...

    The United States could witness a rare “Fujiwhara effect” as two storm systems are expected to come in close proximity in the Gulf of Mexico next week. All eyes are on the gulf coast as the 2020 hurricane season nears its most active month. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is currently tracking two storm systems. Tropical Depression Fourteen is moving northwestward over the northwestern Caribbean Sea and is expected to develop into a named storm and reach hurricane strength. Tropical Storm Laura is moving toward the U.S. from the Atlantic, prompting warnings for the Northern Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico...
