For those that want to get the latest track and wind speed data for Hurricane Gustav and for all active hurricanes go check out our Hurricane Tracker out on MSNBC.COM where they’ve linked to it from their home page.
When you first visit the link the page will draw out the path of the hurricane and land on it’s current position then continue to draw the forecasted path 120 hours out. You can hover over each of the hurricane symbols to get the stats for the recorded including the storm rating, wind speed, location, etc. There’s also a handy histogram on the lower left hand corner that shows wind speeds over time. To check out the other active hurricanes just click the “more” link at the top left.
This is a pretty cool looking map. I kind of like the black background. What do you guys think?
