Looks like Florida is about to get hit by its second hurricane force storm this year. That’s two with the whole months of September and October to go. Hurricane Katrina, if the storm reaches 75 MPH sustained winds, is currently forecast to stay well south of the central Florida attraction area including the Walt Disney World properties. Tampa Bay and its attractions and people, however, may not be so lucky. It looks like they’ll be on the leeward, more powerful, side of the storm as it goes up the west coast.
If you’re already here or planning to arrive in Florida in the next few days you’ll want to keep an eye on the forcast charts at the National Hurricane Center. I will, of course, try and keep you up to date here.
