Hurricane Ophelia – Missed Land the First Time


Now coming back for more?


Lets hope not.

Update: CNN, Ophelia could loop back.

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Florida (AP) — Tropical Storm Ophelia moved away from Florida’s northeast coast Friday, but that may not be the end of it for the peninsula, Georgia or the Carolinas.

Though Ophelia’s top sustained winds had dropped to 65 mph (105 kph), forecasters warned that it is expected to turn toward land as a hurricane next week. It is expected to return to hurricane strength — 74 mph (119 kph) sustained winds — by late Friday.

“By no means should people take this short-term motion as being let off the hook here,” National Hurricane Center meteorologist Jamie Rhome said. “I don’t want people to say, ‘Whew this one’s going out to sea.’ There’s still a possibility that it could loop back.”
