A Trip Over Bill, the Season's First Hurricane


The season's first hurricane, Bill, is currently not expected to threaten the United States but is expected to pass between Bermuda and the U.S. on Saturday. Once a Category 4 storm, Bill has weakened to a Category 3 but has the potential of strengthening again.

  1. Other weather junkies will enjoy Stormpulse (

    It's a very cool web site that tracks hurricanes and tropical storms in close to real time and allows you to view satellite imagery and combine it with various other tracking information.

  3. What an image. It's certainly going to get windy. That's what satellites were invented for. Taking photos like that not spying! :-)

  4. We should always be prepared and ready for any natural calamities, for we can never tell when it will come. It's good that we have been given early warnings so as to prevent greater dangers and destructions.
