Florence, Gordon & TD#12
10:55 PM EDT - 15 September 2000
5 am Update
Gordon still a Tropical Storm as of 5am, although we all are pretty sure it will become a Hurricane and it WILL make landfall somewhere on the Gulf coast. There are still a few important questions. How strong will Gordon get before landfall and what city/town is the target. Hurricane watch still in effect on Florida's west coast from Bonita Beach northward to the Suwanee River. All folks from Louisianna southward should closley montitor Gordon. The orange background means Florida is under a Hurricane Watch. When it becomes a Hurricane Warning it will be RED.
Original 11 pm update
Newly formed Tropical Storm Gordon now in the Gulf. Still up in the air in which direction he will head. I favor more of an east north east track than the current track of the National Hurricane Center. It all has to do with the speed of forward motion. Looks like the upper half of the west coast of Florida needs to keep a close eye on Gordon. Keep in mind that this is just my prediction for now. Things could change as we all know. This year has been a extremely hard hurricane season to forecast. Hurricane Watch in effect for portions of the west coast of Floirda FROM BONITA BEACH NORTHWARD TO THE SUWANEE RIVER
Florence still a Tropical Storm heading in the general direction of Bermuda. Hurricane Watch in effect for the Island of Bermuda. Florence still has the potential to become a hurricane again, so folks on the Island start preparing.
Tropical Depression #12 heading towards the Caribbean Islands some strengthening is forecasted and this is another system we need to keep an eye on. Could this be Helne??
