Tropical Storm Hanna will have little impact on Warren County, other storms on the horizon



Source: National Hurricane Center

Tropical Storm Hanna reached enough strength to become a named storm Thursday night. She became the earliest named eighth tropical storm on record, breaking Harvey’s record in 2005.

When Gonzalo strengthened into a named storm Wednesday, it became the earliest named seventh tropical storm of the Atlantic hurricane season. The previous record was held by Tropical Storm Gert, which formed on July 24, 2005. 

So far this year, Cristobal, Danielle, Edouard and Fay also set records for being the earliest named Atlantic storms of their respective place in the alphabet. 

As we are on the back or “dirty” side of Hanna, her counterclockwise rotation will push some rainfall into our area this afternoon. Forecasters say to expect light to moderate rain with the heaviest activity projected far south of our region.

Hanna is forecast to make landfall in Texas over the weekend.

Gonzalo is expected to impact Barbados and the Windward Islands over the weekend before moving into the Gulf of Mexico next week.

Meanwhile Hurricane Douglas looms in the Pacific Ocean and is expected to drench the Hawaiian Islands this weekend.
