Hurricane Richard is now Tropical Storm Richard, and is weakening rapidly. When this storm passes over the Gulf of Mexico, it is not expected to gain strength, but rather, will be torn asunder by the forces of nature and stuff and will dissipate.
Richard knocked out power and messed up a bunch of roofs, but the news from Belize seems to indicate that the storm was not a disaster.
Will there be a Shary (that’s the next name on the list of hurricane names for this season in the Atlantic). Maybe. There’s a stormy area in the middle of the Atlantic that may develop, but not for a least a few days.
