Major Hurricane Joaquin
« on: September 30, 2015, 11:23:16 PM »
I know it's been dead here lately, but I don't know how in the world we've gone this long without talking about this BEAST of a hurricane which is a potential threat for everyone from GA to New England. Flooding will likely be the biggest headline come this weekend/next week if model guidance is correct on the track. Joaquin is expected to peak to Category 4 intensity (140mph) before weakening to a Category 2 approaching the NC/VA border this weekend according to NHC's current 11pm track.
