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.
Just amazing the storm makes landfall and there is a 73kt wind which equates to 80mph..may as well say humberto was a catagory 1 hurricane..

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:

Looks like a depression is developing rapidly into a tropical storm..
Be on the look out for tornado's...
