Indeed. This is the time to check your hurricane supplies, not on Thursday.

Everyone should have had hurricane supplies and contingency plans in effect at the beginning of hurricane season, not half way through it!

I'm sorry, how do you read the projections? I mean I see where it's heading VIs way but how do you decipher it all? As the months draw near to our move to STX I would like to learn how to follow these sites... I guess that goes with saying thou lol. I HOPE all is ok for eveyone over the weekend!

To understand the projections, I always check out Jeff Masters' blog when a storm is approaching. He explains the meteorological conditions in place that will affect the formation and path of a storm. In addition to his analysis, tons of weather geeks post all kinds of comments/predictions, etc.

You can also watch what's forming at the National Hurricane Center site.You can sign up for alerts there too. But when something is out there, they'll flood your inbox, because they update 4 or more times a day.

We arrive on STJ next Tuesday the 28th. A lot of my hurricane supplies are en route being shipped. Can you recommend the most important things to have on hand so when we arrive we can pick them up immediately? We will miss 94 but looks like 96 is out there too. Thanks!!

We tried to ship our packages at the right time (test package took 18 days) so they would be there when we arrive but I can't depend on that being the case. I know the house we rented has a water cooler so we will have to pick up a few more five gallon jugs of water. I'll pick the other stuff while I'm up here and bring it along in my luggage. Thanks for your help!

Here's a great website that enables you to track all the models of the current storms and disturbances. It's really helpful to get a sense of where all the models project storms to go.

Don't forget you need water to bathe, cook with and flush toilets in addition to drinking water for you, kids, pets, etc. so if power is out for a couple days, have enough on hand unless you have a bathtub to fill or can access your cistern with a bucket (on a line), Better to have more and not need it, than to need it and not have it. Fill ziplock bags with water and lay flat in freezer, they'll help keep foods cold when they freeze and when melted, you can use water to drink.

When do they expect it to reach STX?
Lets hope it doesn't have a name when it gets there.

We are now under a Tropical Storm Watch. Right now, TD9 could be a Cat 1 hurricane when it passes through our vicinity, Wed night/Thursday morning.
