    Beware... Hurricane Fay and the Hebert Box...



    Beware of storms rolling through the Hebert Box. At least 9 times out of 10, when a tropical storm passes through a Hebert Box (there are two), South Florida gets hit... Invest 92 is passing right through the middle of a Hebert Box as we speak...

    "If Floridians want an indication of a possible hit they need to keep an eye on any hurricane that passes through these boxes. Nearly every major Hurricane that hit S Florida since 1900 passed through these boxes. When major Hurricanes miss these boxes,they virtually always miss South Florida. If a major Hurricane moves into these boxes South Florida really needs to watch out. These boxes approx 335 miles x 335 miles includes the Virgin Islands but not Puerto Rico. The pattern has proven accurate for 9 out of 10 storms storms that developed & hit Dade,Broward & Palm Bch Counties."

    edit: I updated the name to Hurricane Fay because this storm is gaining strength EXTREMELY fast..

    This storm is building FAST! I expect Hurricane status within a day or so... The entire east coast, from Florida up, should be watching this storm...

    Consensus is tightening for a Southeast Florida impact. The better question may ask just how strong Fay will be.

    If Fay misses Hispaniola, it'll be a Major Hurricane - Category 3 or higher... Prepare for evacuations...

    I would keep an eye out for this storm, but I wouldn't worry about it for now. Let's just see how she forms and where she goes. So much could happen in the next few days. By the way Sal, tomorrow I am driving down to your neck of the woods tomorrow. I will be in Boynton Beach.

    It's only 3 and half hours. It's not too bad. It is rather enjoyable with my car. My longest drive was the return trip in 2001 in 2001 Monte Carlo from northern Virginia to Savannah. I drove 600 miles in 10 hours. That was a long day.

    Re: Beware... Hurricane Fay and the Hebert Box...

    It just keeps looking worse and worse for Florida. However, the storm IS moving over lots of land - which will delay intensification. So if it does stay on track, it'll likely be less intense than predicted...

    Hispaniola could tear it up pretty good. Will need to reform after that

    In an odd twist of fate, Fay continues to strengthen despite rolling onto land in the Dominican Republic. It's now considered a Tropical Storm (skipped past Tropical Depression from Invest 92).
