For those on the East coast; we have been watching to see if she is coming near. Just remember Hurricane Katrina came ashore as a Cat 2 in 2005; 1800 souls were lost that omnious day and during the recovery so, please evacuate if your area is under mandatory notices. If the military is moving aircraft and ships please note: it's a good idea for you to take leave too. Also, more folks die as the result of the storm surge than those of strong winds. We are keeping ya'll in our prayers for safety.
We are also keeping watch on the next possible storm which will be named after a male; I think it will be Jose or Juan. Did you know storm names are only retired if there has been a major impact but, may be brought back? Here is a list of retired Atlantic storm names, year landed, and area affected.
Keeping ya'll in our thoughts and prayers.
