Well, we're almost at the peak of hurricane season (mid-Sept) and eventhough these shouldn't hit the Gulf coast, they may cause some problems for the east coast os the US... From left to right are Tropical Storm Ophilia, Hurricane Nate and Hurricane Maria. From what I understand Maria shouldn't come close to land, Nate should deflect north and out to sea, but Ophilia is expected to strengthen and threaten the southeast coast (Georgia, North & South Carolina). Right now Ophilia is stationary, but gradually gaining strength. :\ The thing about Nate is that it is where Katrina developed. The only difference is that Katrina was moving south-west when it developed and Nate is moving north right now. This could become a big problem for the north-east and New England areas. This is kind of the same scenario happened back in '85 when Gloria (cat 2 hurricane) hit and caused a lot of damage on Long Island and the tri-state (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut) area.
