STUD: Tropical Storm Hanna

4 09 2008

Tropical Storm Hanna is a bit disorganized and slightly weaker this evening, and could struggle to become a hurricane before approaching the Southeast coast early Saturday. Even so, Hurricane Watches are in effect along the Coastal Carolinas.

In addition to soaking the Carolinas, this system could bring heavy rain and strong winds to the Mid-Atlantic and New England as it heads up the East Coast this weekend.

A Hurricane Watch has been expanded from Edisto Beach, S.C., to Currituck Beach Light, N.C., with Tropical Storm Watches issued from Edisto Beach to Altamaha Sound, Ga., and from the North Carolina/Virginia border to Great Egg Inlet, N.J., including the Delaware Bay, the Chesapeake Bay, the Tidal Potomac River, and Washington D.C.

Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect for the central and northern Bahamas, and from the Savannah River to the North Carolina/Virginia border.

A Hurricane Watch means that winds of 74 mph or higher is possible in the next 36 hours.
