Tropical Storm Maria

Tropical Storm Maria | Weather And Disasters | Scoop.it

Tropical Storm Maria formed in the Atlantic, the 13th named system of the 2011 season, as Hurricane Katia weakened further on its path around Bermuda.

Maria developed about 1,305 miles (2,100 kilometers) east of the Lesser Antilles with maximum winds of 50 miles per hour, moving west at 23 mph, according to an advisory from the National Hurricane Center at 11 a.m. Eastern time.

“We got the 13th named storm of the season and it’s in an environment that isn’t conducive to explosive strengthening,” said Dennis Feltgen, a spokesman for the hurricane center. “In fact, we have it as a tropical storm through the end of the five-day forecast period.”

A low-pressure system over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico off the Yucatan Peninsula is showing “signs of organization” and may become a tropical depression in the next day, according to the center. An Air Force Reserve hurricane hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system today.

Plane Takes Off in Front of a Tornado

Plane Takes Off in Front of a Tornado | Weather And Disasters | Scoop.it
A Ryanair jetliner took off in front of a funnel cloud at the East Midlands Airport in the UK on Thursday, as storms continued to sweep across the area.
Bonnie Burns's insight:

In the midst of tumultuous weather that has been sweeping across the UK, this Boeing 737 took off from an airport with a funnel cloud rotating behind it. The picture, however, may be a bit deceiving, making the funnel appear closer than it actually was. But even still — this could not have been a comforting sight for passengers.

All the Records That Hawaii's Hurricane Iselle Could Break Today

All the Records That Hawaii's Hurricane Iselle Could Break Today | Weather And Disasters | Scoop.it
By striking the Big Island of Hawaii as a hurricane or a strong tropical storm, Iselle is likely to make Hawaii tropical cyclone history.
Bonnie Burns's insight:

Hurricane Iselle is swirling its way toward the Big Island of Hawaii, where a hurricane warning is in effect — the first for any of the Hawaiian islands since 1992. The storm is maintaining its strength despite encountering relatively cool ocean waters and strong winds in the middle and upper atmosphere, two factors that ordinarily weaken tropical storms and hurricanes.
