As Hurricane Katrina intensified rapidly and reached category five status 11 years ago today, forecaster Robert Ricks at the National Weather Service in Slidell decided it was time to issue the dreaded catastrophic damage statement. Some thought it was a joke. Some thought it was overhyped.

Many didn’t listen.

It turned out be very prophetic and unfortunately, very true.

Category five Hurricane Andrew moved into Homestead, FL 24 years ago today. Andrew destroyed some 63,000 homes and left more than 100,000 others damaged; 65 people were killed.

A second landfall would come in a few days on the Louisiana coast...

Tropical Storm Gaston is expected to become a hurricane soon, but is no threat to land as it should recurve over the open Atlantic.

Tropical trio. Chance of TD7 and Fiona impacting the U.S. is small; more questions than answers about 99L. No threats to the Gulf of Mexico this week.

"Invest 99L" finally gets an upgrade to Tropical Depression Nine. For now it is not expected to reach hurricane strength.

Tropical Depression 8 forms in the Atlantic; it is expected to stay below hurricane strength and recurve just off the North Carolina coast.

I would like for it to touch Washington DC, and cool things down okay. I'm tired of this HEAT

Tropical Storm Gaston, in the eastern Atlantic, should become a hurricane in coming days, but it will recurve and for now is no threat to land.
