If only Elsa could just let it go ... gooooo waaaaay out into the ocean and leave us all alone!
The fifth named storm of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season formed over the Atlantic early Thursday. Tropical Storm Elsa has sustained winds of 40 mph and is continuing its track westward at a quick pace of 25 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center. Tropical storm warnings are in effect for Barbados, St. Lucia, Martinique, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, with isolated flash flooding and mudslides possible. Much of South Florida appears to be in the storm’s path, but the NHC advised it is too early to determine the potential impact of the storm.
And just in case you forgot how to read a hurricane map, here it is.
And of course, it looks like we here in Florida will get some of it. Let's hope it stays away from us, but it could touch the Keys. For the sake of Surf Side, we are hoping it doesn't move up to Miami.
