This photo from NOAA says it all – a series of tropical waves and depressions are spinning off Africa and heading our way. “Emily” could be the first to form into a hurricane, with others right behind it.
Get prepared and stay tuned!
The photo is the projected path as of this hour. It could change in the next day. Hopefully it will not reach full hurricane wind speed.
But it is a reminder that these storms don’t give people a lot of time to prepare. What if it were a CAT1 or 3? Do you think you could “board up” in time?
Probably not. That’s why it makes more sense to have 24/7 protection that your get from Armor Glass hurricane security film, which also keeps burglars and solar heat at bay in between storms.
Email or Call for a free quote – but don’t expect us to install it before “Don” hits this Friday/Saturday (we are already booked!).
To be prepared for a hurricane, you have to “plan ahead” (something they should do in Congress as well!). Get prepared. Be prepared. Or next time you may not be so “lucky.”
This is an early start, so worse storms could be possible as we reach the peak of the season in mid-September!
Just in – Tropical Storm “Don” may be forming in the Gulf of Mexico and is heading towards Texas!
Standby for updates. Are you prepared?
I will NOT be boarding up! I don’t have to because I already have Armor Glass hurricane film on my windows! Do you?
Impact Weather hurricane experts have done a great short video on “Where are the Hurricanes?”
I’ve linked a great article on hurricane development. Usually they are kicking in by the end of July.
“The tropical waves coming off of western Africa every 2-4 days are a little better defined than in June, says TWC Hurricane Expert, Dr. Rick Knabb. “That’s one reason why we start to look farther east for development in July.”
The storms whipping the Midwest produced hurricane-force winds up to 100 miles per hour! Not to mention “large hail” which knocks out windows, and tornadoes.
Thousands remained without power in that east Tennessee city on Wednesday.
Further south in Dallas more than 22,000 customers were without power after storms shattered a rain record set in 1926, the Dallas Morning News reported.
The severe weather is set to continue as high temperatures are expected to reach triple digits in Dallas and other areas of Texas and nearby states in the coming days.
Areas in Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Louisiana, Vermont and New York remain at risk from flooding, and thunderstorms, hail, and strong wind are forecasted across the country, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.”
OK, it’s been a HOT summer even before summer and its making everyone crazy so I thought I’d join in. I figured we needed some comic relief.
I’m no rapper and certainly no threat to Jay Z or anyone else (I can’t even sing without scaring people), but here goes my attempt at rap.
Armor Glass “Rap” Song…
When da big winds start blowing
and breakin’ the neighbors glass
And you wonder ‘bout protecting your ass
Momma says you got no need to worry
You got that Armor Glass!
When da bad boys are coming down the street
Breaking windows in the heat
They got to be mad they couldn’t get through yours
Armor Glass Just Can’t Be Beat!
And if your head’s frying in the sun
From the solar blast
Just Cool it with Armor Glass!
So when storms are raging, wiping fast,
no need to worry about broken GLASS!
You got protection with Armor Glass!”
Don’t worry. I’m not about to give up my “day” job to go into rap/songwriting! lol
