The latest forecast from the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, “At 700 AM CDT, satellite imagery, NOAA Doppler weather radar data, and surface observations indicate that the center of Tropical Storm Nestor has redeveloped farther west near latitude 29.5 North, longitude 86.8 West. Nestor is moving toward the northeast near 17 mph [28 km/h].

“Some erratic motion toward the northeast or east-northeast is expected through this morning. A turn toward the east-northeast is forecast to occur Sunday. On the forecast track, Nestor will move inland over the Florida Panhandle late this morning or early afternoon, and will then move across portions of the southeastern United States later today and Sunday as a post-tropical cyclone. Nestor is expected to move offshore of the coast of North Carolina into the western Atlantic by late Sunday also as a post-tropical cyclone.

    We are all entitled to our opinions !

    Do give of your time to make positive worth while recommendations for the benefit of all and in every sector .

    Here is where you see reality come on the table and not hidden under it, because everything counts, no matter how small it is, what if it becomes a “million dollar idea”.

    It is most important and dare I say is critical here is , opinions constructively and freely given by contributors, add much to our success ,their names are immaterial .

    The eleventh hour is here, our future has become critical, the well is dry.
