The National Hurricane Center said there is a chance Danny could hit the area Saturday or Sunday in some form - though forecasters warn storm-tracking paths are unpredictable.

According to historic models, forecasters said there is a 43 percent chance the storm could arrive here with winds of between 39 and 73 mph and a 44 percent chance it could arrive with winds of between 74 and 95 mph - that of a Category 1 hurricane.

"The forecast track is roughly parallel to the U.S. East Coast . . . and any deviation from the track could make a large difference in what areas get impacted by Danny," the National Weather Service said in a statement.

There will be more Hurricanes in the future. Mother Earth is dying along with humanity. We have exploited it so much. We have abused her with atomic explosions that it is unstable. Global warning is killing her.

But there is hope for those that want to overcome. A free gift for humanity is available. No group to join, no money required. Any human being, regardless of color, religion, political or religious position has the potential within. Please ask for a free book at: It has the practices to prepare yourself for what is coming. No one can do the job for you. You and you alone can prepare for what is already happening: Floods, Earthquakes, Global Warming, Pandemics, World Wars etc.
