Heavy rains and floods: another tropical storm moves in the USA
If the meteorological system formed in the southeastern United States develops, it could turn into a tropical storm Fay - the sixth named storm in the Atlantic hurricane season, writes CNN.
If formed, Faye will be the earliest tropical storm, the name of which begins with the letter F. The previous record was set on July 21, 2005 - Franklin Storm.
“The environmental conditions are expected to be favorable for development, and a tropical or subtropical cyclone will probably form within the next day or so,” the National Hurricane Center said.
The system, which is currently operating on the coast, produces heavy rains, including over the ocean.
“We have been observing the movement of the center of this system through Georgia and both Carolina for several days,” said CNN meteorologist Taylor Ward. “As the center moves off the coast of North Carolina and goes around the coast, it can reach the warm waters of the Gulf Stream and become a tropical storm.”
Regardless of whether the storm gets a name or not, the impact on the coast will be about the same. Most of the heavy rains that have already passed through parts of the southeast of the country will continue to impact the North Carolina coast on Thursday, July 9th.
North of the Outer Banks, heavy rains will remain over the ocean.
The storm will continue to move along the coast, affecting the Middle Atlantic and the northeast.
“Residents along the Mid-Atlantic and north-east coast should expect coastal flooding, beach erosion and backwaters from Thursday to Saturday (July 9-11),” says Ward.
The expected rainfall in these regions will be from 1 to 3 inches (2,5-7,6 cm).
Whereas in the Pacific Ocean, at a sufficient distance from the coast, the tropical storm Christina may be the first hurricane of the season, formed on Thursday, July 9, adds Fox News.
Although this may be the first hurricane in the Pacific this season, it will not land and will not pose a threat to the United States, as the elements will move northwest into the open ocean.
