Second Landfall: Charley made a second landfall Saturday morning as a Category 1 hurricane with near 85 mph sustained winds about 35 miles south of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. This entry will focus on Charley’s movement today (more details on Charley’s Florida landfall on Friday are in yesterday’s entry below), but before I get into it, I want to thank each of you who have visited my blog and site. We saw the highest traffic ever Friday. I hope you’ve found both the blog and the city pages worthwhile. I was at the dentist’s half of the day (why did I pick Friday the 13th?) and spent most of the afternoon and evening recovering in between periodic posts here. I hope you found the blog updated for the most part, anyway, back on topic…

Latest On Charley: As of 11 p.m. EDT Saturday, Charley is just barely a tropical storm with maximum sustained winds near 40 mph. Movement: NE near 35 mph. He had 85 mph winds early today and 75 mph late in the morning. [Latest text update here] Charley is expected to dump 1 to 2 inches of rain up to southeastern New England by Sunday morning. See Charley’s 3-Day Expected track. Also, get the latest updates on this and two other new systems in the Atlantic: Tropical Storm Danielle and the even-closer Earl … Some new resources:
