Tropical Storm Karen has formed in the southern Gulf of Mexico with winds of 65 mph. The National Hurricane Centerâs official track takes Karen through the central Gulf toward Alabama, with the current landfall position around Mobile Bay, Ala.
There is a possibility that Karen becomes a hurricane before it makes landfall later Saturday, so a hurricane watch has been issued from Grand Isle, LA eastward to Indian Pass, FL. Tropical storm watches are in effect from Grand Isle westward to Morgan City, LA. The hurricane watch does include Diamondhead, MS.
Tropical Storm Karan is currently not large enough to be adequately resolved by numerical weather prediction models, so there is much uncertainty in the latest forecast track. I’m certain that past experiences will lead all Diamondhead residents to stay vigilant with this storm.
Do you know where I can get sandbags? When it rains very much large amounts of water cross my property from the property above me. I would like to keep it from getting into my dogs’ pen. I would appreciate any info. 🙂
I don’t have anything to report, but yesterday Sunday morning I went to Waveland to Lowes and along their south fence where they have all their sheds that Lowes sell, everyone was destroyed. They’re all crushed in the metal ones look like a tangled mess. It happened Saturday night.
