Tropical storm warning and hurricane watch in effect”

"2020 has yet to have a named storm reach hurricane strength".

The average date for the seventh named storm is September 16, so this formed almost two months ahead of the average storm. It was situated approximately 685 kilometers (1,105 kilometres) east of the southern Windward Islands. It has maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour with higher gusts.

Storms will be possible into Saturday as a front lingers over the area.

Tropical Storm Gonzalo is now packing winds at 65 miles per hour as it heads east toward the eastern Caribbean islands.

Of course, these forecasts for high levels of activity do not necessarily mean high levels of insurance and reinsurance market losses, as it is landfalls that matter, in highly urbanised locations by strong storms and hurricanes.

Gonzalo isn't the only storm to keep an eye on this week.

There is another tropical disturbance, designated Invest 91-L, and it's closer to the United States, located in the Gulf of Mexico.

The NHC said some strengthening is forecast during the next day or two, and there is still a chance that Gonzalo could become a hurricane.

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for. Gusty winds in excess of 85 km/hr can be expected and the risk of landslides/landslips is very high in areas so prone. The previous record was Harvey on August 3, 2005, Klotzbach tweeted.

The start of a rampant season could begin next week with hurricane models tracking three potential systems spinning the Caribbean and the mid Atlantic.

Hanna struck the document since the oldest eighth Atlantic termed storm, in accordance with Colorado State University hurricane researcher Phil Klotzbach.

Hawaii was closely watching the track of Category 3 Hurricane Douglas on Friday.

Hanna will be far away from Alabama, but the storm is generating rip currents along the beaches and a high rip risk of rip currents will be in place through Saturday night. It is forecast to become Tropical Storm Hanna tomorrow with winds up to 45mph as it approaches the Texas coastline.

All of these tropical cyclones are a clear indication the tropics are heating up as we head toward the peak hurricane months of August and September, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association.

The public is advised to prepare emergency supplies and evacuation routes to their nearest shelters if necessary and to continue listening to the latest updates.
