Tropical storm Emily marked the beginning of the tropical storm season for much of North America. While Emily might not have been the first storm to form during the season it was the first storm to potentially threaten the coast of the United States. Early storm prediction patterns indicated that Tropical Storm Emily was expected to impact Florida but fortunately for many residents the storm has now started to fizzle out and die down.
Tropical Storm Emily was always a relatively weak storm but weather analysts still believed that it could cause some significant damage with heavy rain and strong winds if it were to make landfall in Florida. Midweek this week Tropical Storm Emily broke up after passing over part of Haiti which brought good news to the United States as well as Haiti and other tropical islands.
Of course weather experts say that Tropical Storm will likely not be a good indicator of the entire tropical season. Experts say that the tropical season will likely be much more intense than average. Fortunately for everyone living in the predicted path of Tropical Storm Emily there is no immediate danger. There are also no current storms developing in the tropics at this time which means there will likely be at least a week or two of little tropical action. As the heart of tropical storm season approaches weather analysts predict that the storms will begin to pickup in frequency but for now everyone is simply happy that this first storm has died out.
