PostSubject: Gustav threatens Jamaica, new storm in Atlantic   Thu Aug 28, 2008 6:39 pm

Here we are the Hurricane Seasons again and the bearing down has started for us now....

Gustav threatens Jamaica, new storm in Atlantic


KINGSTON, Jamaica (Reuters): Jamaicans deserted the streets and government offices closed as a strengthening Tropical Storm Gustav took aim at the island on Thursday on a path toward the Gulf of Mexico oil fields as a powerful hurricane.

As Gustav churned through the Caribbean, Tropical Storm Hanna formed in the Atlantic Ocean with 40 mph winds and a track that could take it toward the Bahamas and Florida next week, the US National Hurricane Center said.

The seventh storm of what experts expect to be an unusually busy Atlantic hurricane season was 45 miles east of Kingston, Jamaica, by 11 a.m. EDT and its top sustained winds had risen again to 70 mph, just short of the 74 mph hurricane threshold.

In Jamaica, post offices, schools and tax offices shut their doors and authorities ordered nonessential workers to stay home as Gustav neared after taking an unexpected jog south toward the capital and the southern coast.

Thurs 2:00 pm EST Tropical Storm Gustav Update: Hurricane watch continues


Keeping with the latest Updates on Hurricane Gustav, we get these bits of info....


Tropical Storm Gustav is expected to have strengthened to a category 2 hurricane by the time it approaches Grand Cayman tomorrow night (Friday 29 August).

This storm is expected to become a category 1 hurricane today as it moves past Jamaica.

Tropical storm-force winds are likely to start affecting Grand Cayman from tomorrow afternoon (Friday 29 August).

The Cayman Islands remain under a hurricane watch. This means that hurricane conditions could begin to affect the Islands within 36 hours.

The Lates news on Gustav is here, Click Here to Read More

Reuters): Tropical Storm Gustav was expected to start growing into a large and powerful hurricane as it pulled away from Jamaica and headed toward the Cayman Islands on Friday, US forecasters said.

The storm, which killed at least 68 people in the Caribbean in mudslides and floods, was set to strengthen over deep, warm Caribbean waters.

"After the storm moves away from Jamaica, significant intensification is possible," the US National Hurricane Center said.

The Miami-based hurricane centre forecast that Gustav would strengthen into a minimal Category 1 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale as it passed the wealthy Cayman Islands on Friday and then grow into at least a Category 3, or "major" hurricane, just after passing the western tip of Cuba.
