Tropical storms Nadine and Michael could hit the American continent in the next few weeks according NASA forecasts.The new Tropical Depression 14 has specifically been sighted at a region 1,200 miles East of Lesser Antilles and is moving at a reasonably dangerous speed of 55 km per hour.
Just when Tropical storm Isaac seemed to be subsiding, NASA has detected the earliest signs yet of a build up of Tropical Depression 14 early today and has immediately dispatched the Global Hawk drones over the Atlantic on an unmanned mission which may take up to 26 hours.
The key mission of the unmanned drone is to collect data that could help weather forecasters to arm themselves with accurate information about the new storms threatening the American continents with a possibility of building up into a another episode of devastating hurricanes.
The new Tropical Depression 14 has specifically been sighted at a region 1,200 miles East of Lesser Antilles and is moving at a reasonably dangerous speed of 55 km per hour . Forecasters expect the storm to gain momentum and become a tropical storm in the coming days. If it does become a tropical storm, it will be called Nadine and could be the fourteenth named storm of the 2012 hurricane season.
Apart from the looming threat of Tropical storm Nadine, there is yet another threat which has drawn the concern of NASA and this is topical storm Michael which appears to be in its formative stages over the North Atlantic.
As if all these potential threats are not bad enough, the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission Satellite appears to have detected heavy convectional storm build up as well that could pour a lot of tropical rain storms around the Northeast and Northwest quadrants. Going by these threats, American continents should prepare for ye another episode of extreme weather.
