Stay Informed About Current Tropical Systems in the Atlantic

The Atlantic hurricane season is in full swing, and there are currently four tropical systems active in the Atlantic.

Post-tropical cyclone Idalia, Hurricane Franklin, Tropical Storm Jose, and Tropical Depression Gert are all tracking in different directions, but they all pose a potential threat to land areas.

Post-tropical cyclone Idalia is expected to regain tropical storm status and could affect Bermuda and parts of the northeastern United States.

Hurricane Franklin is transitioning into an extratropical cyclone and will continue its journey across the Atlantic.

Tropical Storm Jose is expected to dissipate after merging with Franklin.

Once they merge, the combined storm will likely lose its tropical characteristics and become an extratropical cyclone.

Tropical Depression Gert is not expected to impact land areas, but it could strengthen into a tropical storm.

It is important to stay informed about the latest updates on these tropical systems and to follow the guidance of local authorities.

You can sign up for email alerts from the National Hurricane Center or download their app to stay up-to-date on the latest forecasts.

If you live in an area that is at risk of being impacted by a tropical system, make sure you have a plan in place.

This includes having a go-bag packed with essential supplies, knowing where to take shelter, and having a way to communicate with loved ones.

By staying informed and prepared, you can help to ensure your safety during the Atlantic hurricane season.
