Two Years Since Hurricane Jeanne

You probably don't need me to point out the fact that the tropics have been much quieter this year than the last two. It was two years ago today that the remnants of Hurricane Jeanne caused problems in North Carolina.

Jeanne made landfall in Florida, and its remnants later tracked across portions of North Carolina. The storm produced tornadoes in the state including tornadoes in Moore and Wake Counties.

You can take a look back at Jeanne and its effects on North Carolina by clicking to the following link --

Two years after Jeanne, the tropics are fairly quiet this Thursday. There are no active systems at this time, but the National Hurricane Center is watching a disturbance 850 miles northeast of the Leeward Islands.

There is still time for tropical systems to form in the Atlantic. The season continues until the end of November. For the latest on the tropics, tune to our tropical update at :21 after the hour on News 14 Carolina.
