The National Hurricane Center has issued twelve more hurricane warnings for the east coast of the US. Hurricanes Ophelia, Hurricane Philippe, Hurricane Selma, Hurricane Tammy, Hurricane Vince, are expected to hit in the next two weeks, with seven additional Hurricanes to follow next month. "Regardless of which coast you live on, be prepared to evacuate at least twelve times" the National Weather Services said Thursday, not ruling out the possibility of a thirteenth hurricane by the end of the year.
Viral Message Verification – This is a fake message which claims that ‘The United States is expecting 12 more hurricanes’.This message was published on react365.com on September 26, 2017.This site publish fake news as if they are true and create curiosity among people.
Its claims were deemed "absurd" by the National Hurricane Center. There have been only three hurricanes in the Atlantic: Jose, Maria and Lee. Here's everything we know based on the National Hurican Center's most recent updates.
As of late Saturday, Hurricane Jose was 465 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and moving north at 76 mph. Its maximum sustained winds were 80 mph.Jose is expected to keep heading in the same direction and remain a hurricane through Monday. Some fluctuation in strength is expected, but forecasters expect it to remain a Category 1 storm
Hurricane Jose was 840 miles east of Florida early Wednesday, with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph, making it a Category 1 storm.
"Jose looping over the southwest Atlantic between the Bahamas and Bermuda," the National Hurricane Center
opical Storm Maria
Just hours after forming as the season's 15th tropical depression, Maria strengthened into a tropical storm. Its 7 p.m. Saturday position put it 590 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles, and it was moving west at a rapid clip for an organized storm -- 19 mph.
The National Hurricane Center expects Maria to slow, strengthen and eventually move toward the west-northwest. That change in direction is anticipated late Sunday into early Monday.
Maria's top winds late Saturday night were near 50 mph, with higher gusts. By the time it approaches the Leeward Islands early next week, its expected to be a Category 1 hurricane.
According to the 10 p.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center, a hurricane watch is in effect for Antigua, Barbuda, St. Kitts, Nevis, Montserrat, Guadeloupe, Saba, St. Eustasius, St. Maarten and Anguilla -- meaning the islands anticipate hurricaneconditions within 48 hours.
A tropical storm watch has been issued for St. Lucia, Martinique, Dominica, Barbados, St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Additional hurricane or tropical storm watches are anticipated early Sunday elsewhere in the Lesser Antilles as well as for the British and U.S. Virgin Islands.
The National Weather Center reminds everyone that the forecast cone only shows the possible path of the storm, and that dangerous conditions can occur well outside the cone.
Maria vs. Irma
Hurricane Irma formed much farther east in the Atlantic Ocean than Tropical Storm Irma and was a major hurricane when it approached the Lesser Antilles. At least through the next 48 hours, Maria is expected to take a path fairly similar to Irma's.
Tropical Storm Lee
Tropical Storm Lee still isn't expected to impact more than shipping channels and likely won't strengthen significantly for at least the next 48 hours, according to the 10 p.m. Saturday (Sept. 16) update from the National Hurricane Center.
Though the post is false, NHC Public Affairs Officer Dennis Feltgen advises people to stay vigilant during this active hurricane season. But, in the eyes of the National Hurricane Center, the react365.com claim is still nothing more than fake news and, according to Feltgen, "totally unfounded, totally baseless and totally irresponsible."
