Re: TD#8 in central Atlantic

It is wayyyy to early to predict where and how strong Ingrid can or will be. Look at the cone on the forecasts. See how it expands outward per day? This is the margin of error. In the case of Ingrid if you extend that margin of error, time wise, it could be anywhere in the eastern seaboard. At this point if anyone tells you where this storm is going to hit and how strong it is going to be, They should be flogged. Look at what just happened this morning. How many meterologists thought that Humberto would be a cat 1 at landfall? None... If they would have thought it would have been, you would have seen evacuations, warnings and Jim Cantori over dramatising it on the Weather Channel. Instead they sent Mike Siedel. Why???? Because they thought it was going to be a minimal TS and not news worthy. So once again, NO ONE knows where this storm is going to be in 9 days. Best thing for you to do, if you are that worried now, is be prepared. Get your hurricane supplies now. Food, water, medication for at least 3 days. A few hundred in cash, just incase you have to evacuate doesn't hurt either. During hurricane season you should always be prepared (see Humberto).
