Tropical Storm Hanna Next To Hit U.S.
Tropical Storm Hanna is moving through the Bahamas and toward the South Carolina shore say weather experts causing the South Carolina Governor to recommend the evacuation of two northeast counties – Horry and Georgetown.
“Every one of us needs to continue to watch out in the Atlantic because this could be a dress rehearsal for a thing called Ike,” said Gov. Mark Sanford in a recent address. “Time will tell.”
Hurricane Ike is still churning in the Atlantic but has already been categorized as a level 4 hurricane and is being watched very closely as it may slam into the U.S. soon after Hanna.
Tropical Storm Hanna is expected to reach the U.S. coastline on Friday night. Wind, rain and increased riptide occurrences are expected to hit the U.S. hard as early as Friday morning.
