Since Wednesday, the coasts of Louisiana and Texas has been under a Tropical Storm warning. The storm responsible for this new warning — Ivan. Yes, the Ivan that hit and made landfall on the coast of Alabama last Thursday. The same Ivan that is more than likely responsible for the loss of power here at SterlingManor for 30 hours (despite the fact that power failed 8 or so hours after the weather had cleared). Ivan had looped south back off the coast of Florida and now that it is back in the tropical waters, it is a tropical storm again. This is so unprecedented, the National Hurricane Center had to debate whether to give Ivan back his name or to name him Matthew, or if he gets his old name back.
Here, you can watch its path...over, as of tonight, 21 days.
Of course, that isn't the only storm that seems to be lost. Jeanne did this same loop-de-loop over the Atlantic and is now poised to hit the US again... if it doesn't loop a few more times.
This has been one of the more unbelievable tropical seasons.
