Uh Oh! I am a hurricane magnet, so this distresses me!
They are already thinking this one is heading our way – and it could be a big one! I am far enough from the coast (150 miles) that the winds don’t bother me much – but I am concerned about more rain. We’ve had WAY too much rain already, and Tropical Storm Erin has dumped two inches on my house since last night, and it’s still raining now.
We don’t need any more rain.
“We have an intensifying hurricane,” said Richard Pasch, a hurricane specialist at the center in Miami.
