Port St Lucie Hurricane Wake up Call.
The first named Atlantic tropical storm of the 2014 season, Tropical Storm Arthur, formed off Florida’s Treasure Coast this morning. It will move north to northeast along the East Coast over the next few days, according to the National Hurricane Center. A tropical storm watch is in effect for the east coast of Florida from Fort Pierce to Flagler Beach.
A steady increase in southwesterly steering flow over the southeastern United States is expected to gradually turn the tropical cyclone northward over the next 24-36 hours, and then accelerate the system faster toward the northeast on Thursday and Friday.
The latest National Hurricane Center forecast has Arthur becoming a minimal Category 1 hurricane by 8 a.m. Friday, when it will be over the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It is forecast to stay at Category 1 strength with winds of 75 mph through 8 a.m. Saturday, when it will be out to sea off the coast of Massachusetts.
I woke this morning in Port St Lucie, Florida to stormy weather. Wondering what might be the cause, I checked the National Hurricane Center web site and found that Tropical Storm Arthur had literally formed on Port St Lucie’s doorstep. As luck would have it, at the present time, it is weak and apparently not headed my way. Nevertheless, it is for me a wake up call the shouldn’t be ignored or forgotten. Had this storm developed into a major hurricane, I would have had only a couple hours to become prepared for it. That is just not enough time for me to react and respond.
With less than 8 hours forewarning its unlikely I can secure my home. I need a better hurricane plan. How about you?
