Hurricane Season: Don't Let Your Guard Down

It's been a quiet hurricane season so far for the coast, but experts say now is not the time to become complacent.

Experts with the National Weather Service are reminding coastal residents that we're only in the middle of hurricane season, and that the end is months away.

Hurricane Danielle has weakened a bit as it churned over the Atlantic far off our coastline.

The hurricane reached category two status Tuesday but has since weakened to a tropical storm.

But experts say a low pressure system off the coast of Africa should be on the radar of coastal residents, and not to let their guard down just because it's been a quiet season.

Weather experts also warn that while it will be a beautiful beach weekend, swells could be increased because of tropical storm Danielle that will be well off our coast.

    Ha, in response to the first comment there were many of us who could not get out of NOLA. The Saints played an exhibition game Fri. night 8/26 and Sun. 8/28 the mandatory evacuation was issued. Tried to leave that minute but the Airport, Amtrak, and Greyhound had all closed a day before the evacuation. Many of us were stuck.

    You mean like all those people in the NOLA Superdome did?
