FLORIDA.- The storm tropical Sally was formed this Saturday over South Florida (U.S) with maximum winds of 40 miles per hour (65 km / h), after crossing the peninsula heading to the Gulf of mexico with dangerous rain and storm surge, while Rene degraded in the middle of the North Atlantic.
Sally It is moving west at about 7 m / h (11 km / h) and has a marked path across the Gulf that could reach the southern states of Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana even with force of hurricane.
This would be as of Monday or Tuesday of next week, according to a route chart provided by the US National Hurricane Center (NHC).
Meanwhile, it is leaving accumulated rain up to 8 inches (20 cm) in metropolitan areas of South Florida, including the Keys, and can extend as far as the west coast that includes the Tampa Bay area.
Strong winds from Sally began to be felt in Miami early today, even before I climbed to storm.
The NHC also warns of the possible presence of tornadoes, as well as life-threatening storm surges along the west-central coast of Florida and up to the Panhandle (northwest) of Florida.
At 2:00 p.m. local time (18:00 GMT), the center of Sally It was found 35 miles (60 km) from the coastal town of Naples, Florida. On the other hand, Rene, in the open sea and almost equidistant between the African islands of Cape Verde and those of the North Leeward, in the Lesser Antilles, degraded to a tropical depression with winds now of 35 m / h (55 km / h) .
It will continue to lose strength over the next few days according to the tour graph and without affecting any territory, something that her travel companion Paulette does not seem to accomplish.
This last system could arrive on Monday in the Bermuda Islands converted into hurricane. The strength of its winds at 18.00 GMT marked 70 m / h (110 km / h), said the NHC, based in Miami.
The US observatory also monitors two systems still disorganized in the eastern Atlantic but with potential for development.
It is a large area of low pressure located hundreds of kilometers from the Cape Verde Islands, moving west with a high probability of becoming a cyclone in the next 48 hours.
The other is closer to Cape Verde with rains and thunderstorms, and its evolution forecast is medium, 40% in the next two days.
After Sally Only three of the 21 names on the 2020 list remain available: Teddy, Vicky and Wilfred.
If the cyclones of a season exceed the figure of 21, the number 22 and those that follow will be named after the letters of the Greek alphabet.
The last time this happened was in 2005. (Agency information)
