Ernesto Roundup

We're feeling better here in the Tampa Bay area as the "cone of uncertainty" becomes some other community's bigger concern. All day today we've slowly edged towards the western fringe of the cone giving us reason to offer a collective sigh of relief. The forecasted path now seems to be more towards the eastern side of the state.

But things could change so we won't take our eye of the bouncing ball.

  • Ernesto did claim it's first life. Storm surge in Haiti on Sunday. Read about it here on an excellent blog written by Dr. Jeff Masters on the Weather Underground.

  • Internet rumor that Ernesto's shifting direction today caused the Weather Channel's hurricane expert, Dr. Steve Lyons , threw up his hands then and said "i don't have a clue?"

  • Tuesday is the 1-year anniversary of Katrina coming ashore in Louisiana.
