It can, but I think this a storm has the afterburners on and will turn very little. The Bermuda High is building west with such strength that Erika is caught up in the momentum. There is very little weakness now or down the road with the steering behind Erika, but as we know with the tropics, that can change.
If she were to deepen suddenly or if we had a low in the southeast to weaken the building High, then the dynamics of the steering currents could change but that is a pretty big if. I narrowly missed Hugo when I moved to Charleston in 90, but if I remember a low to the south and high pressure to the north and east forced the same kind of momentum on Hugo and she was into Charleston and all the up to North Carolina in about 24 hours.
I think we have similar force at work here. South Texas or Mex look out.
