Charley Makes Waves; Bonnie Makes Landfall; Oklahoma Storms Kill 2; El Paso Flooding; S.C. On Tropical Storm Watch; Perseid Meteor Shower Picture, Gallery; Webcam Captures Teen Burglar

Tonight’s Hurricane Charley info has been moved into a new entry for Friday. To review today’s events surrounding the biggest threat to Florida’s West Coast in more than four decades: Charley quickly grew from a Category 1 hurricane with 85 mph maximum sustained winds to a Category 2 with 105 mph winds Thursday. Charley began turning from the NW to the NNW late in the day as it moved over Cuba. About 1 million residents and visitors were told to leave while the entire state, expect the Panhandle, was placed under a flood watch.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Bonnie made landfall in the Florida Panhandle Thursday afternoon with 40 mph winds. By 5 p.m. EDT, winds had diminished to near 35 mph. Story. 3-Day track Radar and webcam image resources for the affected area are in the Panama City page

El Paso’s streets flood; storms likely to continue

Of course, SpaceWeather.com always comes through with a great image gallery, this time for the Perseid shower. It even includes that ghostly ping audio from Kickapoo, Texas that I spoke of earlier in this blog…
