Hurricane Wilma heads north

(Click on images for easier viewing in a new window.)

Earlier today, at The Moderate Voice, I wrote about how Wilma smashed through Florida. Now, Wilma is racing up the Atlantic coast towards New England and the Maritimes.

Check out the latest update at StormTrack: "Surface pressures of the Mid-Atlantic are dropping steadily as Hurricane Wilma continues to gain strength. The latest advisory lists Wilma as a strong Category 3 hurricane with sustained winds of 125 mph and a central pressure of 959 mb. Wilma is racing northeast at 47 mph. That is very very very fast for a hurricane."

Here's what to expect: "Wilma's effects are already being felt well up into New England. [Tuesday] will bring near hurricane force winds and several inches of rain and snow to the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic."

It could have been a lot worse, to be sure, but stay tuned for regular updates.
