Firstly, if you have vacation plans for this weekend on the Outer Banks or perhaps South Carolina, you may end up having your plans altered unfortunately. And [...]
NBC has a new show hosted by Cedric the Entertainer called “It’s Worth What?” where the contestants guess which objects are more expensive than others. In the weather department, we do that with weather disasters. Let’s play:

Well, the tropics have died down a little bit.Â Maybe Ike’s been taking all of the energy for itself and not sharing with the other little boys and girls out there looking to grow up to be big storms.Â (kidding).Â Either way, it has slowed down, with the exception of Ike.

It’s been a couple of days since the last hurricane update, so here we go.Â Right now, we’re still watching Hanna, but it looks like that will be a miss for us in the Alleghenies.Â Ike continues his westward progression, with an eventual shift a little north.Â Josephine is still out there… and I mean out there!
