Hurricane Hannah is now on course to hit the southeastern United States. Right on the heels of Gustav, Hurricane Hannah will either brush against eastern Florida or take aim on the Carolinas.
Hannah represents a double-edged sword to the Southeast, parts of which are in the third year of drought so severe river levels on the French Broad haven't been seen so low since record keeping began. Additionally, many communities isolated through the region have had to relocate schools because of their lack of water for basic sanitation.
While no one wants the destruction a Category 2 or 3 Hurricane can cause in the lowlands nor the flooding that is possible, the bottom line when you have a rainfall deficit of over twenty inches is that you have to have the soaking rains that only a hurricane can bring.
Pray for everyone's safety and as smooth a response to Hannah as Gustav received last weekend.
Next on deck: Ike.
Thanks for reading.
