Tropical Storm Watches... TD#13 Forms in East Atlantic
10:54 AM EDT - 21 September 2000
Hurricane Watches are up from Florida/Alabama Border to the mouth of the Alucilla River to the east. Helene has a chance of becoming a minimal hurricane before landfall. Right now the center is nearly exposed, so it's holding on. However, I still think it may strengthen. In any case, this is another big rain bringer. TD#13 hasn't strengthened any yet.
Busy again. Tropical Depression #13 forms in the east Atlantic.
It should track generally westward for the moment and eventually turn north. If in two days or so it doesn't turn north then a more westward track is possible.
Tropical Storm Helene has prompted Tropical Storm Warnings from the mouth of the Pearl River to the mouth of the Aucilla river. It could become a strong Tropical Storm before landfall, and a minimal hurricane is not out of the question either.
More to come later...
