Hurricane Earl path: Follow with online resources

Hurricane Earl’s path is close to the eastern coast of the U.S. and storm force winds are already beginning to affect North Carolina. Many of you will want to be tracking Earl’s progress as it kicks in over the Labor Day weekend and we’d like to share with you some great online resources to enable you to do just that.

Over on Mashable an article by Sarah Kessler gives many ideas for ways of tracking Hurricane Earl, or of course any other hurricanes or tropical storms. The major resource available has to be the National Weather Service which has a color-coded map and enables you to see any weather warnings or advisories in place. You can follow where Earl is likely to impact your area and what the force of the winds may be.

Being able to actually watch the hurricane’s path on satellite might seem amazing but you can do that using NASA Earth Science Office which offers satellite views in infrared so you can watch Earl from outer space. Alternatively how about MyFoxHurricane.com which is a site devoted to hurricanes with a live chat feature, predicted path maps and wave heights.

If you’re a Google Maps enthusiast then watch the progress of Hurricane Earl on StormAdvisory which plots the path and wind speeds as well as the projected path. For many more resources go to mashable.com. Are you in an area forecast to be affected by Hurricane Earl and are you using any of these or other online resources to follow its path? We’d be interested in hearing from you so please do send in those comments.
