Not quite in full force yet, but there’s activity on the radar. Tropical Storm Erin, now a tropical depression, is the first to sweep into the Lonestar state. She arrived 5:00 AM CDT this morning and by 7:00 AM she was downgraded.
Off on the horizon – in the Atlantic – is her big brother, Hurricane Dean. Dean must have been promoted to hurricane within the past few hours (maybe 5:00 AM CDT). We should expect him to strengthen and head straight for the Caribbean (Jamaica) and points west.
