There are now six named storms, three each in the Atlantic and West Pacific. In the Atlantic:
1. Danielle is still a hurricane, but moving off east.
2. Hurricane Earl, already at 125 MPH, however, is not heading north like Danielle did, having already affected St. Thomas, Anguilla and St. Martin, popular cruise ports. Earl will attain Category 4 status, then slight weaken into a 3, but looms to strike the East Coast as early as Friday.
The three storms in the West Pacific:
3. There apparently is Tropical Storm Namtheun at 40 MPH right on the heels of Lionrock, also trying to figure out where to go.
