Even though Hurricane Sandy is not forecasted to effect Alabama, the American Red Cross encourages Alabama residents to download its Hurricane App, create or update their family disaster plan, and restock their emergency preparedness kits. Also, our staff and volunteers are monitoring the progress of this and other storm systems and if need be, we are on standby to deploy trained Red Cross volunteers to help in other areas of the country.
Forecasters with the National Hurricane Center are monitoring two systems in the Atlantic, one of which could later pose a threat to the eastern coast of the United States.
Nadine was first classified as a Tropical Cyclone on September 11th. Now, three weeks and seventy-eight advisories later, she could threaten the Azores Islands once more.
After forming on September 11th, fading briefly and then returning, Nadine could become a hurricane once more.
