My apologies if it applies on how I posted the below on Twitter. I am learning how to use Twitter and I removed the below question from Twitter.
Curious question. The update on the web page for 8/23 @ 0600, what was thinking in regards to a possible threat to W FL?
Thank you. **
Quote: It is now clear that Laura has the potential to be a large and major hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico and possibly make landfall as such. Interests from Texas to western Florida would be wise to pay very close attention to her forecast track, and begin making preparations to protect life and property if within her cone and watch/warning zones.
Hello Keith, and thanks for the question. I'm replying inside your post so that the thread doesn't become ASK/TELL (we have a separate forum for that). Short answer: while Laura is most likely to keep heading west of even far western Florida, it is not yet certain. However, and more probable, as Laura is a decent sized system, dangerous storm surge and rip currents may extend a good distance from her center, outer bands can produce severe thunderstorms with waterspouts/tornadoes, etc. Feel free to send me a direct message for more discussion. Ciel
