Hurricane Igor Resources

According to the 5am Tuesday NHC update, Igor has sustained 75mph winds, making it a category 1 hurricane. Hurricane watches, tropical storm warnings and Environment Canada wind warnings have been issued for Newfoundland in Canada. It will likely come near Newfoundland later today. Much of the east coast of the US has high surf advisories and risk of rip currents (see wave height predictions below). Here are some resources for tracking the storm. Twitter is a great way to get the very latest updates. I will keep this page updated as the storm develops. Please also check out the dashboard and resources tabs on this site for more resources. The image on the left shows the current positions of both Igor and Julia.
