Following the formation of Harvey, two additional tropical systems may form across the Atlantic Basin with one potentially impacting the US
After drenching the Windward Islands, Harvey will continue to track toward Central America and may bring dangerous conditions early next week.
Devastating flooding and mudslides struck the west African country of Sierra Leone, while tropical activity was abundant in the Atlantic.
The legacy of 1992’s Hurricane Andrew, the most recent Category 5 storm to devastate the United States, serves as a stark reminder of nature’s capability to destroy and forever change lives.
It’s now the peak of hurricane season in the Atlantic basin and with that comes the threat of an active September and the possibility of activity in October and beyond.
In the wake of Gert, a large batch of thunderstorms over the central Atlantic has potential to spawn a tropical depression and storm this week.
Hurricane Gert is now at Category 2 strength and will create dangerous seas and surf along the East Coast of the United States into Thursday.
Mexico was hit twice by the same system this week while tornadoes tore through Oklahoma and injured dozens.
