Updates on Active Hurricanes

The 2019 hurricane season which favors ‘above-normal’ activity has witnessed 10–17 named storms so far with Hurricane Dorian being the most devastating of the lot. Here are a few updates on tropical storms still looming in the Atlantic waters:

Tropical Storm Fernand:

The sixth named tropical storm of the Atlantic hurricane season was expected to hit out on the upper Gulf Coast of Mexico on Wednesday, 4th September. According to the National Hurricane Center, Tropical Storm Fernand made landfall along Mexico’s northeast coast with maximum sustained winds going up till 45 mph. Fernand was located 35 miles southeast of La Pesca, Mexico. The storm was moving west-northwest at 8 mph, officials claimed.

Tropical Storm Gabrielle:

ropical storm Gabrielle had been brimming over the eastern Atlantic Ocean, with sustained wind speeds around 50 mph. Moving northwest at 9 mph, Gabrielle didn’t seem to issue a landfall threat as it was too far off in the Atlantic waters. So far, no coastal warnings had been issued. However, recent updates from NHC showcase a possible acceleration in Gabrielle’s trajectory as it is likely to pass Britain in the coming weak and create major disturbances in Britain’s weather.
