There's A Tropical Storm Headed Our Way, Maybe
According to the National Hurricane Center, a tropical depression cooked up in the Atlantic early this morning, and is expected to become a tropical storm sometime today.
TD 9, as they are calling it, had maximum sustained winds near 35 mph as of 2 p.m. today, and is moving west at 18 mph about 500 miles east of Guadeloupe.
The storm could turn into a hurricane by tomorrow but, as of now, South Florida is not in the
CONE OF DEATH cone.
Hurricane hunters are currently investigating the storm.
