Hope everyone is OK...that sure developed quickly!!
Another TD is in mid Atlantic...could be hurricane in 72 hours and looks like a more northerly track that East Coasters will want to monitor. Will start a separate thread if it gets named:

Insails...yup...NWS is completely befuddled as this has NEVER happened before and they were caught flat footed.
On a good note...the wind shear in the area depression 8 is heading should tear it apart by the weekend so little worry there.
